Two of the recently retired teachers, DiAnne Galm and David Burker, from the Catasauqua Area School District can boast long careers with the district.
Galm has been a fitness and wellness teacher in the district for 20 years.
She started at Sheckler Elementary School, moved to Catasauqua Middle School and finished her career at Catasauqua High School.
“The bonus to this is how I followed amazing groups of students through their journey from elementary school through high school. We grew up together,” Galm said.
Several members of the Catasauqua Area School District retired at the end of the 2017-18 school year.
There were two members of the transportation department who retired — Sam Burrows and Thomas Eroh.
Burrows has been a bus driver for eight years. He said he has enjoyed watching the students grow from their first day on the bus to his last day behind the wheel. He particularly enjoyed transporting the teams to sporting events and getting to watch them compete.
Catasauqua High School has announced the students named to the honor roll for the fourth quarter of the 2017-18 academic year.
