Golden Apple: Starla Jones


By CBS-8 Reporter

This week's Golden Apple Teacher is high school math teacher Starla Jones.

Jones is nominated by a student who represents others who love Mrs. Jones for her strength and inspiration.

Not only do they say that she goes the extra mile to help out her students, but Mrs. Jones also conquered two battles with breast cancer all while performing the selfless act of teaching.

Jones says it's difficult to remember how much of an example that a teacher can be for students on a day to day basis.


This week, CBS 8 news visits Luverne High School in Crenshaw County to recognize a special teacher for an outstanding job in the classroom.
