Valerie Young, Bradshaw Mountain High


PHOENIX --- Ms. Valerie Young, a high school math teacher at Bradshaw Mountain High School in Prescott Valley, wasn't counting on this happening when we surprised her with the final Silver Apple award of the year.

Ms. Young encourages her students to excell in math and not be afraid of the challenging subject. She was nominated by one of her students, Alyssa, who say that Ms. Young "banishes uncertainty and encourages each student to go a little further than they would normally go".

Watch this great Silver Apple suprise!

Thank you to Batteries & Bulbs for their sponsorship of this program, making it possible for each of the Silver Apple recipients to receive $500 to use in their classroom.

The nomination phase has ended for this year but we will be back in the fall accepting more nominations for next year.
