2017 Teacher of the Year visiting with her class.

2017 Teacher of the Year, Sr. Donna Demmer, visiting Living History Farms with her class.

Farmstasia is a casually elegant fundraising dinner and auction at Living History Farms. We also celebrate our Teacher of the Year at the event — someone who brings history alive for his or her students. Proceeds from Farmstasia support Living History Farms’ extensive education and outreach programs, which serve nearly 23,000 students annually.

Congratulations to Sr. Donna Demmer – 2017 LHF Teacher of the Year – 5th grade teacher at Resurrection Catholic School in Dubuque.
