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.

Beloved Ballard High science teacher Megan Vogel passed away Monday following a battle with cancer.

Vogel started teaching in the special-ed science program at Ballard High School in 2001 following two years of teaching at a Montana correctional facility.
Despite originally hoping to work in Yellowstone or as a research scientist, Vogel discovered her passion for teaching when she moved into the general science program at Ballard.
She passed her love of science onto her students through classes and trips to Costa Rica and Peru.
Vogel won the Golden Apple Award in 2008, beating out 200 other nominees.
A Facebook memorial page was set up for her Tuesday for friends, family and students to share memories and photos and already has nearly 400 likes.
Here are some of the messages being left on the page:
"Megan was so important to our family because she got us through high school and helped get my kids launched into the world beyond BHS.
