Karla K. French Lougheed, Fellowship Honoree 2010-2011
“I am humbled to be recognized by such an amazing organization, and will do my very best to continue to serve your courageous mission within my profession.” – Kala
Wh en entering the field of education, Kala never imagined she would find her calling working with the toughest students in at-risk, alternative programs. She transitioned to teaching after earning a political science degree and realizing that living campaign-to-campaign did not mesh well with her desire to have a family, and thus Kala earned a Master of Arts and a Teaching Certificate. Originally, her intent was to teach with Kalispell’s International Baccalaureate program. Yet, a mentor encouraged her to ‘check out’ a part time assignment with Bridge Academy and four years later, she remains one of its committed staff members. Additionally, she teaches with LASER, another alternative school district program.
Applications for 2012 available in the Fall
