Back 2 School America's "We Appreciate Teachers" Contest
May 3, 2023
Why Karen Blase Was Chosen
Karen Blase was chosen because of the immense impact she's had on multiple generations of students; her 45 years ensuring students are educated and equipped for the world; the story of Gina on why she was nominated.
Karen Blase is a passionate educator, teaching 45 years at Divine Providence School, where she's also serves as assistant principal. As she approaches her well-earned retirement at the end of this school year, she has undoubtedly had a positive impact on countless lives, and generations of families.
One of the most rewarding aspects of her career has been witnessing the growth of former students, who are now proud parents, entrusting their children to Karen for the same high-quality education that they received. This unique bond between generations is a testament to her unwavering commitment to providing an exceptional learning experience that not only imparts knowledge but also fosters a lifelong love for learning, and a love of others.
A direct example is Gina, who herself was taught by Mrs. Blase and now she is teaching her daughter. Gina saw the "We Appreciate Teachers" contest on social media and felt compelled to nominate her.
