This week's MEA Golden Apple Award winner challenges his students to reach beyond the norm.
He is Fort Service Learning Magnet Academy science teacher Oliver Ellis.
The five year teaching veteran was nominated by fellow educator Draveious White who also told us that Ellis is one of the hardest working teachers he knows.
White says Ellis not only motivates his students but other teachers as well.
Ellis says he enjoys the challenge.
