SJCA English teacher Laura Cunningham has been nominated as a Penn State Intercollegiate Athletics outstanding educator. Nine local educators were honored at the Nittany Lions’ Senior Day game vs. Maryland on November 24.
Head of School Jennifer Mallett notes that “Laura is enthusiastic and professional, yet very flexible. She works with students in her roles at Saint Joseph’s Catholic Academy to spark their interest in English and Business Marketing…She is also an excellent role model for the students.” Mallett adds that Cunningham is “quick to volunteer for collaborative projects and has a keen interest in the workings of the school as a whole. Quite frankly Laura is just a good person and deserves this recognition.”
Educator Appreciation Day honors and recognizes outstanding educators for their dedication and service to their local community. Nominees during the past two years have included teachers, principals, coaches, guidance counselors and many others that have a positive impact on education in their communities.
Congratulations to Laura Cunningham on this outstanding achievement! SJCA is proud to have dedicated teachers like Cunningham, who work hard to prepare students for success.
