Golden Apple: Shanda Brown
Our Golden Apple Award Winner this week comes from the Wilcox County School System. In her 12th year of teaching, 4th and 6th grade math teacher Shanda Brown is quick to point out why she is a teacher.
“I am a teacher because I have a passion for children and a passion for teaching and its in my DNA, it’s a calling. I allow my students to be discoverers and explorers and let them explore and be responsible for their own learning, while I’m there coaching them through, so basically, that’s me in a nutshell in my classroom,” say Brown.
Congratulations Mrs. Brown! If you know of a great educator we should recognize, you can nominate them by going to our website, Alabama News dot Net, click on the “Golden Apple” banner and fill out the nomination form.
