For 28 years, Robin Vaughn has been a teacher, and she's spent the last five at North Bay Haven Charter Academy.

"I absolutely love our school, I think we found the recipe for success here, quality educators, great administrators, the parents and families support us so much," Vaughn said. "But, the kids are truly amazing. My scholars wake me up and make me want to teach everyday."

She's the 11th and 12th grade AP English teacher. Every day Vaughn comes to school ready to help her students excel.

"I love waking up everyday and doing this," Vaughn said. "It really is my passion. I love the content and what I teach, it's just the joy of seeing the kids get it."

She makes learning fun and engaging, sometimes in a unique way.

"I might throw out a little a little rap or a little dance as I'm treating part of the lesson just because you know, I feel like once you have them you can teach them," Vaughn said.

This Golden Apple winner says she feel blessed to work at North Bay Haven and hopes to inspire her scholars far beyond AP English.
