Three Catholic school teachers were recognized by the Pennsylvania affiliate of the Council on American Private Education (PACAPE) for the outstanding dedication to the children in their care: Sister Margaret Rose Adams of Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Willow Grove; Maureen Ludwig of Good Shepherd Catholic School in Ardsley; and Melissa Feilke of Queen of Angels Regional Catholic School in Willow Grove.
Sister Margaret Rose Adams was given the Early Education Administrator Award. Under her leadership, Queen of Angels Regional School has updated its technology program and has acquired tablets, netbooks, and Smart boards for all grade levels. She wants children to be given opportunities and also learn the appropriate use of technology and providing direction for digital citizenship.
Maureen Ludwig was given the Early Education Teacher award. Ms. Ludwig said, “My goal is to nurture each child’s relationship with a loving God and to foster a love of learning by engaging children in all academic areas in a happy and positive environment.”
Melissa Feilke was given the Primary Education Teacher award because of her passion for history, shown through innovative projects, dynamic lectures and fantastic field trips. Her students are engaged in learning, and many times are heard talking about something Mrs. Feilke taught as they change classes. She demonstrates fairness and compassion to her students and outstanding dedication to our school community.
These winners of the 2016 PACAPE Private School Teacher, Administrator and School Awards were recognized at the state capitol on May 4.
Congratulations and thank you for helping the next generation of Pennsylvanians grow in wisdom and grace!
