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.
