    Nelson Art Teacher Tina Daskalopoulos had just kicked off her first class session of the day on March 29 when she was surprised by an unexpected visit from District leaders, news cameras, and local media. The occasion? Daskalopoulos is one of ten 2017 recipients of a Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching!
     
    This year's award recipients were selected from a pool of more than 600 nominations, and represent 4th-8th grade teachers throughout the Chicagoland area. Golden Apple's mission is to inspire, develop, and support teacher and school leader excellence in Illinois.
     
    "Ms. Daskalopoulos truly lives District 63's commitment to teaching excellence," noted Dr. Scott Clay, Superintendent. "We're thrilled that she has received this well-deserved honor, as she exemplifies our dedication to supporting each student's unique pathway to success."
     
    Daskalopoulos and her fellow Golden Apple recipients will be honored at a ceremony on May 20 at Chicago's WTTW/Channel 11 studios. WTTW will broadcast the awards following the event; details will be available soon at the Golden Apple Awards website.

    The last thing Gemini Science Teacher Kathryn Sjoholm expected during her final class of the day on March 14 was a surprise visit from the small crowd that entered the classroom! 

    Niles Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Katie Schneider, accompanied by D63 leaders, was there to congratulate her for being named the winner of the 2017 Niles Night of Roses Dedication to Youth Excellence Award, which honors "an individual who fosters a positive environment to teach, educate, instruct, counsel, or inspire our youth." Sjoholm is indeed a worthy recipient: since joining D63 in 1997, she has launched and led activities -- from the Gemini Cheerleading Team to the Girls Softball Team and the Gembots Robotics Team -- that offer students multiple pathways to success. We're proud to have Sjoholm on our D63 team!
