VIENNA, W. Va (WTAP)- A hard working teacher has been selected as the Jan Dils Golden Apple Award winner for the month of January.
Caitlin Stewart is a first grade teacher at Neale Elementary. She has been teaching for six years and believes that encouragement is a key to student success. Parents say that there is never a question about their child’s grades because Stewart always keeps them informed.
Her advice for being a successful teacher is perseverance.
“Some days are going to be really challenging, but you have to push through those days and look at the big picture of it and see how rewarding it can be. Each year there’s something special that happens that sticks with me and motivates me to be a better teacher,” she notes.
