Teacher Wins WYFF Golden Apple Award

District Six is proud to announce that West View Elementary School teacher Mary deGuzman has been awarded the WYFF Golden Apple award. The third-grade teacher learned of her award this morning when a WYFF television crew surprised her at the school. Two of Ms. deGuzman's students nominated her for this honor.  Ms deGuzman has been teaching since 1990 when she graduated from Furman University. She says “I love children - how they have such a curiosity and wonder about the world around them. I love how they look at life with such awe and no matter how badly their day was yesterday; their resilience enables them to bounce right back up and forget about the troubles of yesterday.”  Ms. deGuzman’s  story is scheduled to air on News Channel 4 at 5:00 p.m. on December 9th. Golden Apple Award nominations are available in Bi-Lo stores.
