Faith, values, and life-long learning, that’s what’s important to this week’s Golden Apple Award Winning School Teacher.
Mrs. Catherine Kern is more than humbled by the honor of being named this week’s Golden Apple Award Winner. A product of the parochial school system, Mrs. Kern has taught in the Catholic system for nine years, the last four months at St. James, where she says it’s important for young people to be taught faith and values. Mrs. Kern teaches science and social studies but says it’s “much more than that… knowledge is power”.
Sarah Sweet nominated her teacher for the Golden Apple for helping her to love learning. She says science wasn’t one of her favorite subjects, but with Mrs. Kern, she “really enjoyed it”.
