Congratulations to Orland Junior High School language arts and reading teacher Mrs. Michelle Kedzierski on receiving the Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching! This award is given to only ten teachers from a pool of 600. Award recipients must be nominated, then go through an extensive application and interview process to be selected. Finalists were notified earlier this year, and Mrs. Kedzierski was surprised by the entire school community, including students, her family and friends, administrators and Mayor McLaughlin at an assembly on Friday, March 24th. We are so proud of Mrs. Kedzierski and so thankful to have her as part of the District 135 family.
