Karen Sjoberg, a business educator at Wauzeka-Steuben High School and a Prairie du Chien resident, has been named a 2014 Herb Kohl Educational Foundation Fellowship recipient. She was one of only two public school teachers in CESA 3 recognized with the honor—in addition to Cathy Jones, from Mount Horeb Pecatonica Elementary.
Annually, the foundation awards 100 Wisconsin teachers with $1,000 Kohl Fellowship grants, and each Kohl Fellowship recipient’s school receives a matching $1,000 grant.
“I’m very appreciative of this honor, and grateful to the people who wrote such wonderful recommendations,” Sjoberg said. “During a time when being a teacher is often difficult, the best part of the day is being in the classroom with students—just me and them.”
