ELGS teacher nominated for Kohl award

Submitted photo Submitted photo Beth Roehl, Family and Consumer Science Teacher at ELG High School, has been nominated for the Kohl Teacher Fellowship Program. Roehl teaches a variety of classes in the area of Family and Consumer from Culinary Arts courses to Personal Finance. She has incorporated the ability for her students to earn certification and advanced standing from LTC in the areas of ProStart, ServSafe, and Customer Service. Her roles also include the School-to-Work and Youth Apprentice coordinator.

Roehl was nominated by the ELG School District as she has built the school’s culinary arts program to be one of finest around, which is shown by her students’ success in various competitions—both state and national. She has revised her curriculum to match the expectations her students will encounter in the “real world” – whether it be further schooling or entering the workforce.

However, she has not only kept, but expanded many of the favorite class projects, such as the All School Student/Grandparent Thanksgiving Day Luncheon. Her enthusiasm, passion and leadership were instrumental in building a strong Youth Apprentice program at ELGS as she is not only a teacher to her students, but also a mentor and a promoter.

Roehl’s application was selected by a CESA 7 review team to be forwarded to the state level for consideration by the Kohl Foundation. Winners are expected to be announced in March. The Kohl Teacher Fellowship Program annually awards 100 Wisconsin teachers with Kohl Fellowship grants, and each Kohl Fellowship recipient’s school receives a matching grant. Fellowship recipients are also considered for nomination for Wisconsin Teacher of the Year.
