PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - This week’s Golden Apple Award winner is Mrs. Sissie Presley.
Mrs. Presley is a 6th grade A.P. U.S history teacher at Mowat Middle School.
Mrs. Presely taught for one year 25 years ago and decided to come back this past September, right in the middle of the pandemic.
A choice she says she does not regret. Many of Mrs. Presley’s students asked her why she came back.
“I wanna know that one day they look back and say, I had this teacher and she taught me this, this, and this and I still remember her name to this day. I want to be that for one of these kids,” Presley said.
Mrs. Presley said the hardest part about coming back to teach after nearly 25 years was figuring out all the new technology that she didn’t use when she taught the first time around.
