This year’s Crystal Apple Award recipient is Lori Marett. Lori is a dedicated educator who cares deeply about student success. For many years she worked as an English teacher, ESL instructor and built the High Honors Program.  More recently, she has transformed the library into a high-interest, student-centered environment where all feel welcome. Lori spends countless hours helping students and teachers, planning programs to encourage reading, such as Battle of the Books and March Madness.  In addition, she researches the best books for the library. It’s not unusual to see Lori talking with students about their favorite books. She encourages students to write what books they want to read on her book recommendations list because she values their opinions. The library is the heart of the school, and Lori is a vital part of our school’s success.

Not only is Lori a phenomenal librarian, she is also a valued member of the faculty and a dear friend.  Congratulations Lori!
