PARKERSBURG W.Va (WTAP)- The Jan Dils Golden Apple for the month of October has been awarded.
Stephanie Brock, a special-education teacher at Worthington Elementary, was selected for her dedication to her students and desire to see them succeed inside and outside of the classroom.
Brock sees the importance of student achievement academically and understands ways to help her students develop emotionally.
She has been teaching special education nine years and says the most rewarding part of her job is watching her students transform.
“I have some amazing stories about my students," she said. "I’ve had kids come in that we’ve had to lure in the classroom with Legos and give them weeks to get adjusted to being able to be in the classroom, and now they’re participating with their friends, helping their younger children, reading and just doing so well.”
