The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) announced today that Mrs. Vickie Coyle, All Saints librarian, has been selected to receive the Distinguished Teacher Award presented by the Elementary Schools Department of the NCEA.
This award was established in 1981 and is presented to one teacher in each of the geographic regions into which the department divides the United States. All Saints is located in Region 4 which includes the states of Virginia, Maryland, West Virginia, Delaware, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, Georgia as well as Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia.
As a community we rejoice in the recognition that Mrs. Coyle is receiving for her outstanding contributions to Catholic education and for the impact that she has had on the students of All Saints. School principal Mr. David Conroy added, “While I have every confidence that Mrs. Coyle’s instructional leadership has been fundamental to the success of our school, particularly in the area of reading and language arts, the commitment to life-long reading that she has fostered in her students is the greater gift. Perhaps what has made her so effective is the wonderful sense of joy and aplomb that she brings to all of her endeavors. With a sparkling sense of humor and a radiant personality, the students are inspired by her commitment, her positive outlook and her steadfast belief in them. Indeed, Mrs. Coyle has helped to transform our school and lead our community from good to great.”
On behalf of All Saints Catholic School, congratulations, Mrs. Coyle! Let the celebration begin!
