All Golden Apple Teachers become lifelong members of the Teacher Academy. Members work to encourage and promote the education profession and to provide positive educational outreach to the community as well as professional development, training and mentoring to new and veteran teachers.
The Academy provides master teachers with an arena to give back, offering other teachers access to their expertise to help improve our local school system and the profession at large. The Academy is committed to ongoing professional development through the provision of conferences and workshops and the mentoring of first-year teachers. Members of the Academy receive a stipend to be used for their own professional growth.
