17, 1992 The Message R for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana 3 Bonnie Ambrose Janice Ballard Jane Barbara Donna Carie - McBride McGinness Seventeen teachers in the Diocese of Evansville have boon selected as Candidates for the 1992 Teacher of the Year awardwhich is being co-sponsored by the Message and the Office of Catholic Education. The winner of the 1992 Teacher of the Year Award will be announced by Bishop Gerald A, Gettelfinger May 6 at a banquet in Celebration Hall, in the Catholic Center, in Evansville. "Our tradition is rich in sign and symbol, and the honor given to one teacher is intended as sign of ap- preciation for the excellence that is shared by so many teachers," said Paul R. Leingang, Message editor. "While excellence may be shared by many, each teacher is unique, and I" feel it is important, to single out one person as a living symbol o.f that excellence." The process of selecting a "Teacher of the Year" began in January when principals, pastors and mem- bers of the:general public were invited to submit names. From the list Of names subniitted, the follow- ing candidates were chosen: Sr, Beata Bonnie Ambrose, Holy Rosary School, Evansville; Melding O.S.B. : Janice Ballard, Westside Catholic Consolidated School, Evansville; Judy Blankenberger, Resurrection SchOol, 9ODe Miller lO, edfrom page 1 Says all of her past :es have helped her as a school secre- the mother of four she says, "I ot of empathy for ad children." the values she re- she was a stu- 'erra College of the in Lake Forest, also helped her in Our priorities in that God is Lrst: And we know {o enjoy.

ANTHONY Her workday begins at 6:50 a.m. and ends about 3:45 p.m. Every day rushes by, she says. "It's straight through with no breaks and a half an hour for lunch. I look up at the clock and say, 'my word, it's time for lunch.' I look up again and it's time to go home." She says she enjoys coming to work every day and she be- lieves in St. Benedict School. "1 really care a lot about chil- dren. I enjoy them. I have a lot of respect for the person- ii nel here and I always felt St. Benedict was a top-notch school." As a school secretary, she says she tries to be a "laid- back person. And to keep a positive attitude about things. It's important to keep things confidential. You hear so many things in the office and it's important not to relay what you hear, even to other members of the staff." She also says it's important to be supportive of the school, the principal, the staff, the policies and the stu- dents. She has been married since 1955 to David "Jerry" Miller. They are the parents of four married daughters and the grandparents of six grandchildren. This coming fall, Miller will be cutting back her hours at St. Ben's. She plans to spend more time with the loves of her life, "my family, my music and my grand- kids."
