Mrs. Melissa Feilke, an eighth grade teacher at Queen of Angels Regional School (Montgomery County), was named an NCEA (National Catholic Education Association) Distinguished Teacher. She will receive her award at the annual NCEA Convention held in April in Pittsburgh.
Loving, caring, nurturing, creative, and energetic all describe Mrs. Feilke. Making her classes enjoyable, inspiring, and captivating, Mrs. Feilke incorporates strategies that bring the lessons to a greater student understanding. She excels in the understanding, utilization, and teaching of technology. Often seen with an iPad in her hand, she displays her notes and teacher created videos on the board. Mrs. Feilke goes far beyond the call of duty to bring a positive spirit to our school. She not only volunteers to run programs, she initiates the program itself. Mrs. Feilke is truly deserving of this award. Congratulations Mrs. Feilke. You make us very proud all the time. Queen of Angels is blessed to have you on our faculty.
