By Special to the Monitor

Seven New Mexico high school teachers have earned the prestigious Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching.
The Golden Apple Award has been given since 1996 to 102 New Mexico teachers, recognizing that the quality of their teaching is the single most important factor in their students’ academic success.
Jean Baca teaches biology (with special education students included in regular education classes) and anatomy and physiology at Volcano Vista High School in Albuquerque Public Schools.
David Bair teaches 9th grade world history and student government at Bosque School, a private school in Albuquerque. In his application, Bair described his own struggles as a student, having a very late diagnosis of dyslexia when he was in college.  
Kris Gracey teaches health education at La Cueva High School in Albuquerque Public Schools.  Students, parents and colleagues at La Cueva High School described her consistently as a remarkably positive influence on the lives of her students, while the selection team noted her “deep grasp of the content area and of the behavioral and psychological development of teens.”
