What is The Red Apple Award?
Classroom Antics summer camps are amazing experiences, filled with vast educational enrichment, new friends, and lifetime memories. These experiences are made possible by our experienced teachers. From their preparation and training to be masters of the technologies they teach to the high-energy they deliver in the classroom during the week of camp, our teachers run a fun, educational, and professional camp. Red Apple Awards recognize our teachers who go above and beyond for their students and their families.

More About our Teacher of the Year
Jacob Wilson has been excellent for years, and we’re happy to finally recognize this. No matter which technology Jacob has taught, he always excels. His soft-spoken leadership is well-received by students, while exhibiting incredible classroom management. Jacob takes time with each child when they have a question. Having taught with Classroom Antics for many years, we are blessed Jacob continues to spread his positivity with students. He has a unique skill teaching children how to approach a problem, rather than just telling them how to do it. Great job this year and always, Jacob!
