2020 is a year Mrs. Thaller at St. Vincent de Paul would call nothing short of a challenge with the Covid-19 pandemic, she's managed to keep her students engaged.
"I'm amazed at the resilience that they have to bounce back and just roll with all the punches and just to go with everything to be in school safely. They're doing an amazing job."
The school year, a challenging one for this inspirational teacher.
She just recently returned to the classroom from back surgery.
"It's fantastic to be back in the classroom. 2020 has just been a year of many surprises and ups and downs. I'm just happy to keep going with it, and be here every day."
During Catholic Schools Week, and on Teachers Appreciation Day, we picked the perfect time to present the One Class at a Time grant.
Thaller says the check will go toward new science activities for the classroom.
