Marie Condie receives Crystal Apple Teacher Award

Miss Marie Condie receives Crystal Apple Teacher Award

Marie Condie, math teacher here at Springville High, recently received the Crystal Apple Teacher Award.  Condie was very surprised and excited that she won.  Condie was nominated by fellow Springville High colleagues to receive the award.  She has been teaching for 17 years.  Her favorite classes to teach are geometry, calculus, and statistics.  Unfortunately, she no longer gets to teach geometry. Her advice to students is “learn how to work hard.”  She decided to teach math due to a love of mathematics.  She had many other career options, but she noticed that her friends were really struggling in math and that she was able to help them understand problems. Her favorite part about teaching at SHS is that she is still a Red Devil since she also graduated from Springville High and is now a proud teacher.

Her favorite quote is by Marianne Williamson, called “Our Deepest Fear.” 

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous?  Actually, who are you not to be?  You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.  As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others,” by Marianne Williamson.
