She is described as not just a teacher, but a life changer.
One Blennerhassett Middle School teacher is the Jan Dils Golden Apple Award Winner for the month of November!
The whole school cheered as Lucy Holland received the honor.
She was nominated by a former student who says her teaching style is tough, but effective.
The school agrees the most influential part of her teaching is her enthusiasm and excitement she has for the students and to be teaching something she loves.
"And I am probably one of the most difficult and strict teachers. Its not easy. My class is not easy. It is very challenging for them. They have to study and do a lot of stuff for me but at the same time, we have a lot of fun. Everything we learn is with fun we dance, we cook," says Holland.
Mrs. Holland teaches Spanish at the school which means she doesn't always have every student.
So those nominating her say this is the perfect way to show she should never be underestimated.
