  Mrs. Gilliland, a first grade teacher at Battlefield Primary, was awarded the Golden Apple Award from Channel 12 on the 17th of September. This year will be Mrs. Gilliland’s second year at Battlefield, but her seventh year teaching. She helps students with their reading skills, especially in the Guided Reading program. She is also the leadership chair for her grade level. 

     “Mrs. Gilliland is well respected by her peers and is always excited to teach her students. She does whatever it takes, whether that means staying late or spending her own money,” said Principal Geoff Rhodes. 

     Mrs. Gilliland said her favorite part of the day is the Morning Meeting, “I greet the students, let them share stories, and practice social skills. I love watching the students interact and make friends.” She said she was completely shocked and humbled to receive the Golden Apple Award. However, it is easy to see that Mrs. G is passionate about her students. “Every day I focus on doing better. The next day can be better, and I can always learn something,” said Mrs. Gilliland, “whether that be going to other teachers or going to a new training, I can always learn and improve.”

     Congratulations Mrs. Gilliland!  Mrs. Gilliland
