He’s Blanchard Elementary 3rd grade teacher Scott Stafford, who accepted the MEA Golden Apple this week from New’s 3 Carlos Williams.
Stafford was nominated by parent Laurie Billiot who told us that Mr. Stafford finds out the strengths and weaknesses of each student, then works with them to make sure they get the most out of his class. The Troy State grad doesn’t teach music, but was surprised with a serenade by the school chorus before our presentation.
The 16 year teaching veteran says he’s just doing what he loves.
Stafford was also congratulated by Blanchard Interim Principal Melana Cassell.
