Well if you were just watching Oprah, you got a chance to meet some great teachers.
Oprah introduced us to educators who are changing the world, one student at a time, and Rockford has it own share of great teachers.
We sat down with one Friday afternoon, Golden Apple recipient Beth Rydberg. Rydberg is an art teacher at Bloom Elementary School, and explains what it is that makes a good teacher.
Beth Rydberg was one of five Rockford teachers who received the Golden Apple honor this past April.
