MASON CITY, Iowa - It's that time of the week where we recognize a teacher who is making a big difference in their student's lives. This week’s Golden Apple Award winner is Mrs. Linda Lindsay.
Lindsay teaches students with behavioral needs at the Pinecrest Center in Mason City.
“We just thought Linda was so deserving of this award. She gives everything every day, she always has a smile on her face, she can turn any bad day into a good day,” says Lindsay’s co-worker Aria Behne who nominated her for the award.
And when you are working with students with behavioral needs, Mrs. Lindsay says those bad days are more frequent than you might think.
“They need someone that really loves them and cares about them. They need to know that they are important,” says Lindsay.
It's something Mrs. Lindsay has learned in her 33 years of teaching kids with behavioral needs.
“Just to help them so when they are struggling that they remember some of the positive things we've said to them so they can keep going I guess.”
And that positivity is one reason Behne nominated her.
“She can always find the good in the stressful and she always encourages the kids and her coworkers to be positive and be happy,” says Behne.
As for how Mrs. Lindsay feels about winning the Golden Apple Award…“Oh I feel very honored, I do.”
