2008, Golden Apple Award to Megan Vogel
Megan Vogel has been selected as a recipient of a KCTS 9 Golden Apple Award. Since 1992, the Golden Apple Awards program has received nominations citing the achievements of more than 3,000 individuals and programs. This year, the Golden Apple Awards drew nominations from all corners of our state, telling stories of teachers, administrators, staff and innovative programs that are making a difference in our schools. Last spring one of Ms. Vogel's students, Jasmin Kwan (who is now attending Cornish School of the Arts) nominated Ms. Vogel for this award.

Learning should be fun, according to Megan Vogel. Science is very difficult to make fun, as there is so much new vocabulary and concepts that are introduced and need to be connected to other curriculum areas. When Ms. Vogel became a teacher, she vowed to "be the teacher that I never had". Ms. Vogel has become that teacher and takes great pride in being able to motivate students to have an interest in science, even if they didn't coming into the classroom. The most powerful thing that Ms. Vogel has developed while at Ballard High School is an international ecology class. The reason she started this is because travel is such a valuable way for students to learn, especially ecology and how natural systems work as well as human impact. In the past six years that Ms. Vogel has been teaching this course she has taken 82 students to Costa Rica and 13 to the Peruvian Amazon. Of those students 21 had special education services provided to them and 41 of them were of lower socioeconomic status. All of the students earn part or all of the money needed to participate and all returned as different people (according to their parents). These opportunities are life changing for students and they have all told Ms. Vogel afterwards how significant this experience has been for them during their high school career. Megan Vogel will be honored at the Golden Apple Award ceremony scheduled for January 16, 2009. During the ceremony a video featuring Ms. Vogel and her work will be presented. Congratulations Ms. Vogel on this prestigious sward and being part of the Ballard High School community.
