Going the extra mile for students, parents and coworkers.
It earned one Lubeck Elementary teacher the Jan Dils Golden Apple Award for the month of October!
It wasn't a surprise for the students and faculty as Mrs. Anna Deem was honored as this month's winner.
She taught first graders for years and plans to retire this year.
Mrs. Deem was nominated by a former student who is now a co-worker who says Mrs. Deem inspired her to become a teacher.
The school says Mrs. Deem always seems to spend extra hours preparing her classroom everyday, takes extra time to help every student and talks with parents.
Mrs. Deem says getting this award is the perfect way to end a successful teaching career.
Mrs. Deem is also part of the school's technology team, using her tech savvy skills to help out others.
The nomination describes her as the perfect example of what a teacher should be.
Congratulations Mrs. Deem!
