Brandman-trained teachers earn Crystal Apple Educator awards in Santa Barbara County

April 27, 2016

Two Brandman-trained teachers are among those receiving Crystal Apple Educator awards from the Santa Barbara County Education Office.

Both Patricia Epperson and Bama Medley attended Extended Education classes at the Santa Maria campus.

Epperson teaches at Miller Elementary School in Santa Maria and Medley, a teacher on special assignment with the Santa Maria-Bonita School District, is a certificated support provider. They’ll be honored along with three other north Santa Barbara County educators and five south Santa Barbara County educators at the annual Education Celebration sponsored by the Teachers Network of the Santa Barbara County Education Office on May 26 at the Santa Ynez Valley Marriott in Buellton.

The annual awards recognize educators for their dedication, their instructional and motivational skills, their ability to challenge and inspire students and their ability to interact with students, staff and members of the local community, according to a story in the Santa Maria Times.
