Elizabeth Palone, an elementary structured learning teacher at Levy Special Education Center, was recently surprised in her classroom with the Golden Apple Award from KAKE-TV. She was nominated for the award by the parent of a student.
“I was very surprised and excited about the award,” said Palone. “I wasn’t expecting it at all and knowing that it came from a parent made it even more special.”
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.
