Twin brothers Brandon and Andrew Webb wrote to tell us all about their second grade teacher Wendy Lavender and why she should win our MEA Golden Apple Award.
The letters prompted News 3's Carlos Williams to head up to Harris County's Mulberry Creek Elementary School to honor Ms. Lavender with the award.
The brothers told us Ms. Lavender makes learning fun and that she makes them feel like they are actually her kids.
She is awesome according to the brothers.
Lavender, a 30-year teaching veteran, says she has enjoyed every minute of her career.
Ms. Lavender was also congratulated by Mulberry Principal Dr. Justin Finney and Assistant Principal Beverly Weaver.
Congratulations again to teacher Wendy Lavender this week's MEA Federal Credit Union Golden Apple Award winner.
