In its first year of being included in the annual Golden Apple Awards, Algoma Elementary School already has its first recipient. Jaime Robinson was given the Teacher of Distinction Award last week ahead of its full announcement later this month. Robinson, a second-grade teacher at Algoma Elementary School, was one of over 40 people to earn the recognition in the Greater Green Bay Chamber's first round of announcements. After teaching in the Luxemburg-Casco School District for 17 years and Algoma School District for 11 years, Robinson believes the award is a testament to the hard work of everyone.
Luxemburg-Casco Intermediate School's Leila Balza has also been recognized by the Greater Green Bay Chamber as a Teacher of Distinction. Robinson and Balza will formally receive their awards at a ceremony to be held in April.
