While teaching a class at Oak Terrace Elementary School, fifth grade dual language teacher Patricia Castro was surprised by her family, community members, administration members from North Shore School District 112 and members of the Highland Park Community Foundation (HPCF) when she was presented with the foundation’s Golden Apple award.

The award has been given out annually by the HPCF since 2010, and rotates each year as to which grade level teacher receives it.
