Jena Albee, a teacher at Ginther Elementary School, was recently presented with the Golden Apple Award by News 8. Ms. Albee has been with the Brockport Central School District since 2013.

Amber Hoertz nominated Albee for this award. Mrs. Hoertz’s daughter, Teagan, is in Albee’s class and had a difficult time with the transition from UPK to kindergarten. “Jena recognized this behavior quickly and enrolled her in the “Schools Cool Club” to help her,” said Mrs. Hoertz. “She continues to inform (us) on Teagan’s progress and provides positive feedback when she excels. Jena keeps the line of communication open, and I truly feel lucky to have her as a part of my daughter’s life.”

“It was so sweet of Teagan and her mom to nominate me,” said Ms. Albee. “I cannot believe I have had such a positive impact on this student. I am truly honored to teach my kindergarten students.”

The Golden Apple Award presentation will be aired on News 8 on January 7 at 5:45 p.m. and January 8 during their Sunrise Newscast.
