A teacher at Oskaloosa Elementary School was honored by WHO-13 yesterday for her outstanding performance as a teacher in Iowa.
Megan VandeVoort has been at Oskaloosa Elementary for 14 years, and she teaches the 1st grade. Yesterday, she was honored at an assembly at the school for her efforts in fostering a fun and welcoming learning environment.
VandeVoort said that being a teacher is something she always wanted to do.
She said that when she heard a Golden Apple was about to be awarded to a teacher at the school, she thought there were plenty of teachers at the school who were deserving of it.
Along with the Golden Apple, a $500 check was presented to OES in VandeVoort’s name, courtesy of IMT Insurance and Rathbun Lake Insurance.
