South Beloit teacher is Golden Apple award winner

Written by  CSI Media news
SOUTH BELOIT -- Linda Julian, a music teacher at Willowpook Middle School, was one of this year’s five honorees to receive a Golden Apple award from the Golden Apple Foundation of Rockford.

The award winners were presented Thursday, March 9, 2017.

An 18-year veteran, Julian teaches six- through eighth- grade choirs, seventh grade speech, fifth grade chorus and general music. Linda wrote,

"I constantly look for new ways to involve, encourage and challenge my students. Because the majority of my classes are performance-based, you will always find every student engaged and participating in class. While not every student may show the energy and enthusiasm I request, I continue to encourage them to work harder," Julian wrote in her online biography. "I often remind them that I am a greedy person, and therefore, I will always want more from them."

Julian seizes the opportunity to explore and discuss diversity by choosing what she says are "well-written works that will encourage questions or discussions about race, culture and individual beliefs. This music serves as a guide for the students to understand that music is a common denominator that can ping many people together through the enjoyment of listening to, learning about, and performing many different kinds of music."

Other winners are Jared Young of Belvidere North High School, Sarah Schaefer of Rockford’s Roosevelt Community Education Center, Julie Thomas of Harlem High School and Thomas Fressmeier of Harlem Middle School.

Jennifer Macek of Roosevelt Community Education Center was named the winner of the Investing in Excellence: Assistant Principal Development Program for 2017.
