RANTOUL, Ill. (WCIA) — This Teacher to Know has spent the better half of her life in front of a classroom. Cathy Hunt teaches at St. Malachy, the school she attended herself as a student.
Hunt has a long background in education. She’s taught in other parts of the Midwest, teaching different grade levels and subjects, as well as spending time as an administrator.
But, for the last 20+ years, she’s been called back home.
Thursday, Hunt was teaching Spanish to preschoolers and elementary school students. She had kids reciting their colors, days of the week and even playing games.
Hunt says the kids are her favorite part of the job and she can’t imagine her life without them. Hunt says she hates summer.
She’s been teaching 32 years. When asked when she might call it quits, she quickly says, “No time soon.”
