The final WGEM Golden Apple Award winner of the school year was awarded to Elizabeth Bailey of Liberty Elementary School.
Bailey is in her ninth year teaching and says the teaching profession came naturally to her.
“I knew I wanted to be a teacher when I was very young,” Bailey said. “I have a lot of educators in my family, a lot. I just never doubted that, so that’s why I’m here.
The entire school surprised Bailey in the gym with an assembly this week after she received her award. The band played and there was even a “top ten reasons we love Mrs. Bailey”.
Coming up tonight on WGEM News at Six, some Bailey’s students and colleagues share why she is the best of the best.
