Shelly Salley, an art teacher at East High School, was recently surprised in her classroom with the Golden Apple Award from KAKE-TV. She was nominated for the award by a student.
“I was both moved and surprised to hear that I was nominated for The Golden Apple Award,” said Salley. “The most important part of our job is making connections with our students and I’m fortunate to watch kids grow both personally and creatively through their art. I learn something new from my students every day and they challenge me to be a better educator.”
The Golden Apple Award winners receive a Golden Apple trophy from Davis-Moore Autogroup and Meritrust Credit Union and $1,000 in school supplies from Project Teacher. The winner is featured on KAKE-TV’s Monday 5 p.m. newscast.
