Alums Earn Teacher Honors


The Missouri Association of Colleges for Teacher Education has selected two Fontbonne University alumni among their 64 Outstanding Beginning Teacher honorees for 2013. Thomas Puetz '11 teaches mathematics at Marquette High School in the Rockwood School District, and Kara Welty '11 teaches first grade at J.L. Mudd Elementary in the Fort Zumwalt School District.

This award is given to teachers within their first two years of teaching in school districts across Missouri. A ceremony will be held for the honorees on April 25 where they will be given an engraved plaque. Recipients are selected based on evaluations completed by their college or university and recommendations from the school district.

Congratulations from Fontbonne to these two outstanding alumni!
