This month, January of 2020, our honored teacher was Marge Couget, who has been a kindergarten teacher at Beattie Elementary School for nine years Her career spans 28 years of teaching. She was introduced by her principal, Dave Patterson.  Presenting Couget with a check for $250 from RCFC was Committee Member, Marty Bachman.
As a child Marge was inspired by an elementary school teacher who was her neighbor. Today Marge is a nationally certified teacher, meaning that she can teach in any state. Many of her accomplishments deserve special mention: She pioneered a new math curriculum and has devoted time to work with a group of students who have experienced trauma. Marge has also collaborated with CSU to bring work-study students to serve throughout Beattie Elementary in support roles. Her presentation at our club told about life with some of her pupils. Her sparkling sense of humor brought on several bouts of hearty laughter.
