Champions For Learning Announces Teachers of Distinction

Champions For Learning is proud to announce the Golden Apple Teacher Recognition Program’s 2017-2018 Teachers of Distinction. This year, Hurricane Irma provided an opportunity for each school to bring forward a teacher and best practice to highlight on behalf of their school. From this group of Teachers of Distinction, Champions For Learning’s community-based selection committee will identify five teachers to highlight as Golden Apple recipients.

In addition to a $250 cash award and multiple celebration activities, the Teachers of Distinction representing 55 schools, will have the opportunity to share their best practices across the county with their colleagues and the community through this process. The core value around the impact that a teacher can have on our students and their learning is a belief on which Champions For Learning was founded by the community.

The Teachers of Distinction and the Golden Apple recipients will be honored at the 28th Annual Golden Apple Celebration of Teachers Dinner presented by Suncoast Credit Union on April 16, 2018, at the Naples Grande Beach Resort.

Opportunities to sponsor a school to attend the event are available. For more information on event sponsorships and ticket sales go to
