Today, my office was able to have the opportunity to surprise our Lake View High School music teacher Puja Ramaswamy with the Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Ramaswamy has been teaching music at Lake View High School for four years. While teaching remotely in Fall 2020, Ramaswamy developed a lesson plan on protest music and the way music connected to each child’s passion for society, politics, and any other issue they cared about.
She and ten other teachers across the city won the Golden Apple Award this year.
We are so honored to be able to have such an excellent teacher represent our community.
