Congrats to Chicago teachers and DePaul School of Education alumni Monica Gil, Samina Khan and Virginia Kogen, all of whom received kudos from the Golden Apple Foundation this month. Gil and Khan both won Golden Apple Awards, and Virginia Kogen received a Teachers of Distinction Award.

Gil is a teacher at Gray Elementary School in Chicago’s Portage Park neighborhood. Khan is the sole science teacher at the Michele Clark Academic Preparatory Magnet High School in Chicago’s Austin neighborhood and Kogen teaches English to seventh- and eighth-graders at Madero School in Chicago’s South Lawndale neighborhood.

In honor of their service, Golden Apple recipients get tuition-free spring-term sabbatical at Northwestern University, a personal computer from IBM, $3,000, and membership in the Golden Apple Academy of Educators.

The three will be honored at an award ceremony on Sept. 6 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. Check out the one-hour, prime-time Golden Apple award ceremony special airing on WTTW/Channel 11 later in the fall.
