By  | 

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. For the next four weeks, we will recognize these Golden Apple Recipients.

Northstar Principal Timothy Skutley made the presentation to Northstar seventh grade social studies teacher, Amy Carlson-Sather.
Carlson-Sather says she's honored to receive her Golden Apple, but gives credit to her students who embrace the opportunity to discuss current events in our world.

"They're so positive, and they really give us hope. They are so accepting, they love justice, they stick up for each other and there are bumps, and yes, they're definitely bumps. But, they are the ones that you keep coming back for. No matter what's going on in the district. The kids are amazing and they make me hopeful and that's exciting,” said Carlson-Sather.

"Her instructional skills are amazing. She engages students in learning, not a lot of sit and get in here class, a lot of role playing, project based learning. Kids are up and moving around, they are talking with each other. She's just an exemplary teacher,” said Kit Schiefelbein, Northstar Middle School assistant principal.

Carlson-Sather and Northstar will receive a $1,000 grant from the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation.

Carlson-Sather will get to use $500 for her classroom.
