Irmo, SC (WLTX) - Every week News 19 awards outstanding Midlands teachers that go above and beyond in the classroom.
This week's Golden Apple winner, Kerri Roberts, is a second grade teacher at Oak Pointe Elementary in Irmo. A teacher for 12 years, Kerri has been with Oak Pointe since it first opened their doors.
A self proclaimed "teacher blog stalker," Mrs. Roberts brings the creative ideas she finds online into her classroom. One of the ideas she's implemented is having the children bring in framed family photos to display in the classroom. "Our family is important to us at home and here in the classroom as well." She says.
Bringing that kind of unconditional love into her teaching is one of many things that sets Mrs. Roberts apart from the rest. Principal Cassy Paschal tells News 19 that Kerri, " loves the kids and figuring out what they need on an individual basis." She adds, "The sky's the limit with her and her teaching."
