Meadowview Elementary first grade teacher honored with Golden Apple Award

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- For the second straight year, WEAU 13 News is partnering with the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation to honor one educator from all 20 public schools in the district with a Golden Apple Award.

Meadowview principal Kurt Madsen made the Golden Apple award presentation to first grade teacher, Sarah Loback. She's been teaching for 13 years including the past five in first grade and says it's humbling to be honored by her peers. Sarah adds it's simply rewarding getting a chance to have an impact on children as they begin their educational journey.

Loback says, "They just love to be here, they are so excited to be at school, and they're still young enough that you can be silly and goofy with them but they also know when it's a serious time. And so developmentally they're such a fun age, so much growth from the beginning of the year to the end of the year."

Loback's fellow first grade teacher, Kelly Staniszewski, adds,
"First graders are 6-years old, excited about life, excited about learning and having that command of the classroom just enhances their learning and their well-being. Sarah is 100% dedicated to her students, to teaching and to Meadowview."

Loback and Meadowview Elementary school will receive a $1,000 grant from the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation and Sarah will get to use 500 of those dollars to use in her classroom.
