Twenty-four teachers across the area honored
By Hub City Times staff
MARSHFIELD — Across the district and surrounding areas on Tuesday, 24 Teachers of Distinction were recognized as part of the Crystal Apple Awards nomination process.
Students were asked to nominate their favorite teachers, and then fellow educators voted to narrow that list to 24 Teachers of Distinction. From that group, four Crystal Apple winners will be named, and all 24 teachers will be recognized at a banquet in October at Hotel Marshfield. The announcement of the four Crystal Apple Award winners will occur in May.
Grant Elementary kindergarten teacher Sheila Hollatz was recognized as a Teacher of Distinction for the second time in three years, and Hub City Times was present to capture the moment.
Sheila’s husband, Nathan, and her two daughters, Kylee and Addasyn, came to see her recognized in front of her class as Crystal Apple ambassadors Jodi Larson and Tina Mueller and Grant principal Jeff Damrau announced the honor.
