Kathleen Breede Golden Apple Recipient


A teacher in Newport was nominated by Jennifer Hole, who writes that her friend's top priority is the emotional well-being of her students and the life-long connections that she makes.

The Golden Apple Award goes to Kathleen Breede, guidance counselor and educator at Claiborne Pell Elementary School.

For more than 30 years, she's been teaching in the school district that she attended as a child, which explains her deep commitment.
