Have you ever had a teacher who you thought was hard…but when you look back, you realize he or she was actually a big part of your success.
Such is the case with Hardaway High School teacher Ashley Snow who was presented with the MEA Golden Apple Award this week.
Mr. Snow was nominated by student Quinton Blount who described the 13 year veteran as a dedicated teacher who goes out of his way to help the students learn.
Blount says he had difficulty when he first entered Mr. Snow's class but now says history is one of his best subjects.
Snow, who teaches U.S. History and 20th century world history, says he feels it is part of his job to support his students especially in difficult situations.
Congratulations again to teacher Ashley Snow, this week's MEA Federal Credit Union Golden Apple Award winner.
