Congratulations to Susan Harper who was named Symetra Hero in the Classroom on September 2 during a surprise assembly at Apollo Elementary. Seattle Seahawks mascot Blitz showed up to help present Harper the award.
 
Per the Businesswire.com article on Susan’s award: “Susan Harper gives the gift of reading to her students. As Apollo Elementary’s reading specialist, she not only works with students that need more help, she helps build their confidence. She teaches them how to be responsible and how to be a learner,” said Cassie (LaFranchi) Stuard, a teaching colleague. “Susan provides life lessons to students, and she helps each and every child that walks through her classroom door learn how to be a better person. She is an unbelievably gifted teacher, and we are truly blessed to have her at our school.” Stuard nominated Harper for the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom® award.
 
Harper is one of 16 K–12 teachers that will be honored for educational excellence in the Symetra Heroes in the Classroom program during the 2016 NFL season. As a part of the award, a $1,000 donation to Apollo was made for classroom books and supplies. Heroes also are given tickets to a Seahawks home game.
