Jenna Heaton and Jeanine Davis don’t have Julie Brennan as a teacher this year, but that doesn’t stop them from visiting her classroom every day just to talk.
“Just that she’s so open, she doesn’t hide anything, she’s just such a great teacher,” Heaton, a junior, says.
She’s not just a great English teacher at Spencerport High School, but someone who helps guide students into adulthood.
“Teachers are going to mold you into the something better and we want to make sure that people are aware and notice her and appreciated all the hard work she does for the students and for the school,” Davis, a junior, says.
Brennan’s principal, Sean McCabe, says Brennan is an example of a true teacher saying, “The key to a great teacher is develop a relationship with students so that students know that they actually care about them and when students feel that way, I think students are able to be more successful, more comfortable in class.”
Heaton and Davis went in together to nominate Brennan for a Golden Apple Award.
As she received the award, Brennan said, “I just love these kids, they mean everything to me, I love teaching, it’s the best job in the world, I’m going to cry, this is crazy, thank you!”
