Lafayette Elementary teacher honored

While away from the keyboard for a few hours tonight, we received two notes (thank you!) that Lafayette Elementary fifth-grade teacher Catherine Bloom was honored today as the STAR 101.5 “Teacher of the Week”; checking their website, it appears to be a new program they just started this month. (Disclosure: As we mention on our “about” page, Mrs. Bloom is one of the fabulous people who taught and helped the Junior Member of the WSB Team in his Lafayette days.) This is her last year, so what a great time for a well-deserved honor — congratulations, Mrs. Bloom!

    wow…Catherine Bloom was my daughter’s 5th grade teacher…and my daughter is now 27 years old. She was a wonderful teacher back then, so I’m sure she has aged like a fine wine, excellent all around…glad she was honored this way….

    I nominate my 2nd Grade Teacher from Lafayette during the ’65-’66 school year, Miss (Priscilla) Trush! (Whom I had a big crush on, because she was this pretty, young, blond!)

    This is amazing–Mrs. Bloom was my second and fifth grade teacher at Lafayeete. I am now 27. I can’t believe she is still working. She was a great teacher and ran a tight ship.

    Congrats to Mrs. Bloom!
    She was my 1st & 2nd grade teacher at Lafayette and was excellent then as well.

    She was my 1st and 2nd grade teacher too, in the early 80’s. Fabulous teacher, fabulous person.

    Congratulations Mrs. Bloom!
