Cincy Magazine, a business magazine in the Cincinnati area, recently put out its inaugural list of outstanding educators. Of the 25 teachers honored in the story, 15 were from Catholic schools. As we begin the 2011-2012 school year, it is important to remember that quality learning begins with a strong teacher. Technology and textbooks are important to the learning process, but nothing can replace an engaging and effective instructor.
Our Catholic schools have a history of attracting outstanding educators. These teachers consider their job to be a vocation; they seek to guide their children as they develop intellectually, physically, socially, and (most importantly) spiritually. Our Catholic schools succeed because of the numerous talents of our teachers.
Yet the hard work and dedication of our teachers often goes unacknowledged. Thus, while we celebrate the well-deserved accolades of the 15 teachers honored in Cincy Magazine, I know that our schools are full of instructors who are also deserving of high praise. May God bless our many teachers who personify the educational ministry of Christ!
The teachers described in Cincy Magazine are Kathy Bromer (St. James the Greater), Allison Burns (St. Francis Seraph), Dave Eby (St. Xavier High School), Michelle Frey (Prince of Peace), Ann Hinkle (Ursuline Academy), Susan Kampel (Holy Family), Barb Lunken (St. Boniface), Craig Phillips (All Saints), Alison Probst (St. Ursula Academy), Laura Rupp (Purcell-Marian High School), Michelle Shafer (Mount Notre Dame High School), Beth Siemer (St. Ignatius Loyola), James Stetzler (Corryville Catholic), Libby Turner (Resurrection), and Mark Wiesner (Summit Country Day). Congratulations to all!
