A ‘golden’ accolade
Rosa McCullagh (center), a mathematics teacher at University High School, is one of 10 Chicago-area teachers to receive the prestigious Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching. Each of the winners receives a tuition-free fall-term sabbatical at Northwestern University; $2,500; and a personal computer from Apple. McCullagh, who has taught at the Laboratory Schools since 1995, was praised for setting high standards and engaging her students in learning. Other Laboratory Schools teachers who also have won a Golden Apple Award congratulate McCullagh. They are, from left, Michael Wilson, Catharine Bell, Randal Fowler and Hanna Goldschmidt.
