Sacramento ‘Teacher of the Year’ laid offWork hard, excel at what you do, contribute to society, and get laid off anyway.Sixth-grade teacher Michelle Apperson passed down a simple message to her students.
"My favorite teachers growing up were the ones who challenged me to go out of my comfort level a little bit, strive for the stars, and work hard," the veteran California educator wrote on her school's bio page.
But her own hard work wasn't enough to keep her employed.
Despite just being named Sacramento's "Teacher of the Year," Apperson was laid off as part of a massive budget cut.
Ain't it great?
