LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The recipients of the 2021 Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Award were announced yesterday by the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools.
The foundation surprised six teachers with the Golden Apple Award.
Once again, the six recipients of the prestigious Golden Apple Award are representatives of all the outstanding educators we have in the School District of Lee County. I can think of no more important profession than teaching. The impact of the teaching profession is felt throughout the entire community and deserves to be applauded.
The winners are:
Jamie Ayres – Cape Coral High School
Nathan Buehler – Mirror Lakes Elementary School
Joseph Camputaro – The Sanibel School
Melissa Holland – Tanglewood Elementary School
Marylin Prysi – Villas Elementary School
Bryan Williams – Mariner High School
The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools. says Golden Apple Recipients are chosen after going through an extensive selection process which began in September with a community-wide invitation to nominate teachers from The School District of Lee County.
The six finalists were selected after completing a three-step process, which included a blind comprehensive application, observations in their classroom of their teaching style and skill, and personal interviews with the Golden Apple Selection Committee.
Recipients of the Golden Apple Teacher Award will be honored at a black-tie affair held at Caloosa Sound Convention Center & Amphitheater on Friday, June 18th, at 5:30 p.m.
