Congratulations Frau Bahr!

Linda Bahr

Roseburg High - German Teacher

Linda Bahr is truly a German teacher extraordinaire.  A seasoned educator, her enthusiasm, compassion, and dedication to her students and the German program are unmatched.  Her lessons are challenging, engaging, and set-up for the success of all her students.  Blended with her very creative lessons is the warm, welcoming tone she sets in her classroom and the positive relationships she establishes with her students.  Many years ago, Linda spearheaded a now very popular and successful German American Partnership Program.  Every other year, she orchestrates either the travel of 20-30 students to Germany, staying with families and going to German schools or hosts 30 students from Germany.  During the three weeks that our German exchange students are here, Linda makes sure that they experience a variety of American activities that seem to go from dawn to dusk.  Thoughtful, caring, and intelligent, Linda Bahr is one of those rare individuals who gives unselfishly to the success of all those around her.  She is phenomenal and truly deserving of being recognized as an Unsung Hero.

About the Unsung Hero Award

Cascade Community started the Unsung Hero program in 1996 as a way of recognizing and celebrating school employees throughout Douglas County who continually go above and beyond the call of duty. School employees nominate their co-workers for the honor and Cascade Community's dedicated Selection Committee chooses acertified and classified Unsung Hero for each month of the school year. Recognizing the outstanding individuals who teach and nurtureour children is so very important, but the program doesn't work without school participation. Please, if you are interested in being an Unsung Hero Advocate at your school or for more program information, please contact Casey at cthorp@cascadecu.org or 464-6850. 10056
