Catherine Van Winkle

East Stroudsburg High School North

Dingmans Ferry, PA

Catherine is a seasoned teacher but has the energy of a newbie. She is a rockstar being the advisor for the senior class student government yearbook and coaches softball. She has been working 12 hour days trying to make a Prom happen for our Senior class in the cafeteria. It isn’t our norm but she is making it beautiful and rallies the staff behind her. What she doesn’t go unnoticed by the students either. Our students get to will a fictional or real item for when they leave a current senior wants to will her the world because that is what she gives to her students and she’s right. We also just recently had a teacher superlative contest and she won both most school spirited and mom of North. There is a reason for this she is amazing and for the 9 months we are at school she gives her everything. As I said she is energetic and has an aura about her never letting on how exhausted she really is. She is the epitome of the person most deserving of a vacation.
