Rich East special education teacher Debra Thomas has received the coveted Golden Apple Award.
Thomas was selected last month as one of 30 finalists to be considered for the award. After a final selection process, the Rich East teacher was chosen as one of only 10 winners. Close to 400 teachers in the Chicago area were considered for the recognition. Thomas was nominated for her passion and dedication to teaching.
“We are incredibly proud of Debra,” said Rich East Principal Mark Kramer.
Thomas was surprised with the news earlier today, receiving congratulations from colleagues at the school.
“I work with a great team of teachers, administrators, students, and parents, which has a lot to do with this honor,” said Thomas.
