"This is there very first experience in school, and I want to make it fun, and I want them to know learning is fun," Walsingham said.

Through engaging books, rhyming songs, and interesting games, Walsingham is helping her students have a great first experience in the classroom.

"I love making that connection with your kids early on, when they know that you love them learning will occur, I love that bond, I love that connection," Walsingham said.

Walsingham teaches more than just reading and math.

"We teach about kindness, we teach about being a peace-maker, including others and those are life-long skills they'll have forever," Walsingham said.

This Golden Apple winner lives in Lynn Haven and says educating students in her own community means the world.
