GRACE Teacher Named 2023 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Teacher

Mrs. Annie Stewart, Kindergarten teacher at Father Allouez Catholic School, has been named a 2023 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation teacher. She is one of only one hundred teachers in the state of Wisconsin to receive the honor each year.

The Foundation cited Amy’s attributes as a skilled leader, an agent for positive change and a teacher embodying a superior ability to inspire a love of learning as reasons for her selection for this prestigious award. Her fellow staff members, parents and students concur that she is much deserving of this recognition.

“Mrs. Stewart is a fine example of the many talented teachers in our GRACE family,” GRACE President Kim Desotell shares, “She is loved by all and has a very special gift for teaching children. Congratulations Mrs. Stewart! We are proud of you!”

The fellowship comes with a $6,000 grant given to the school to help finance “unrealized goals.” This is not the first time that Father Allouez Catholic School has had a winning staff member.

“I received the Herb Kohl award for administrators in 2018-2019,” Principal Kay Franz recalls. Keeping in mind the rigorous process involved in the selection of award winners, the school should be proud to boast of two of the best in Wisconsin!
