When a Teacher Undergoes Chemotherapy—And Still Shows Up to Teach

OUR TEACHER HERO OF THE WEEK: Kathryn Youngman teaches Spanish at Pendleton High School and is in the midst of her third battle with cancer. But that hasn’t stopped her from showing up to teach even though she undergoes chemotherapy on a bi-weekly basis. To celebrate her, her students have started the #YoungmanOnEllen campaign to capture the attention of TV’s Ellen Degeneres. Help spread the word!
