Campion Academy’s very own Kent Kast has been nominated for the Northern Colorado January Teacher Tuesday award! The teacher with the most votes will receive a $500 donation to his or her school as well as some personal gifts. The award is sponsored by Tutoring Excellence and is promoted by several local radio stations. Kast was nominated by a student and then was selected to be in the top six candidates.
Kast is the Vice-Principal of Academics at Campion and teaches Chemistry, Physics, Pre-Calculus, and Calculus classes. While these subjects may sound daunting to many students, Kast has a way of making them understandable. “He won’t quit on you,” said Caleb Wehling, junior. “He’ll keep going until you get it.”
Beyond the classroom, Kast stands-out because he is so actively involved in student-life activities. Kast helps to lead out the outdoor club where he teaches students to rock-climb, snow-ski, snowboard, and conquer 14’ers. He is also musically inclined and plays in the Campion Academy Orchestra and sings in the select choir, Koinonia. And for any off-campus trips, Kast is usually found at the driver’s seat of the bus.
“Mr. Kast is a great teacher because he challenges the students in such a positive way,” reflected Sydney Michalenko, senior. “For me personally, he challenged me to take Physics and Pre-calculus this year. He encourages students to do their best and is always willing to help any time of day.”
We are proud of Mr. Kast and all our great teachers at Campion who continually challenge students and show them an example of Christ’s love in and outside of the classroom.
Voting closes this Wednesday, January 23 - so vote now!
