PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Congratulations to the March, 2019 Jan Dils' Golden Apple Award winner: Jason Czerr, who teaches language arts and helps coach the cross country team at Edison Middle School in Wood County.
This is Czerr’s 14th year teaching.
Close to 700 students packed the schools gym as Czerr was surprised with the award.
He was nominated by former student Abbi Francisco.
She says he is always finding ways to be involved with his students and encourages them.
Czerr says, “Every single day, students or people walk into my classroom and I have the chance to make an impression upon their minds in a positive way. They go out there and they return that positive attitude to the world so, I guess it's my way to make the world a better place."
