Jesus Albarran, Knapp Elementary School kindergarten teacher, was KNWA’s Golden Apple winner for September.
The award commends excellent teachers or other school leaders and role models for the positive influence they have on their kids, according to the KNWA website.
The educator said he tries every day to better understand how he can further improve as a teacher for his students.
“They inspire me to be a better teacher, but not just a better teacher, but also a better person,” Albarran told KNWA. “At the end of the day, that’s what I want to take home with me.”
Albarran’s class cheered Sept. 29 as he was surprised with the award.
