The Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Progam enhances public education by recognizing and rewarding excellence in teaching. Public school teachers are nominated by students, parents, administrators and the general public for their extraordinary contributions to our students. The final six recipients of the Golden Apple are honored at a dinner attended by more than 800. Another component of the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program is Colelgium for the Advancement of Education. Invited teachers who rank highly in the Golden Apple selection process participate in a 40-hour professional develoment program . The teacher training is based on strategies for increasing student achievement by helping students to self-evaluate and make responsible choices. This program is based on "Choosing Excellence" which integrates the Quality School philosophy of Dr. William Glasser.
