Congratulations to Kacy Berry on being named our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week!

On Wednesday morning, November 17th, STAR 101.5 surprised Cathcart Elementary School's special education teacher, Mrs. Kacy Berry and her classroom, with news that she was being honored as our STAR 101.5 Teacher of the Week! Mrs. Berry was nominated by Shelley Ryan and her son Nolan, one of Mrs. Berry's students.

"Teaching is a challenge for all teachers right now, however, special education teachers have additional challenges and need some special recognition. Mrs. Berry has the same kids that she works with year to year and she has managed to keep things positive and be supportive through online, hybrid and in-person learning," shared Shelley.

"Special education teachers are amazing and she truly deserves credit for weathering the storm and thinking outside the box to keep everyone moving forward and positive about school."

Mrs. Berry received a $101.50 check from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission, and a personalized plaque from Trophies2Go. Each student also received a goody bag full of prizes from STAR 101.5 and the Washington State Potato Commission.
