Miss Katie Mosca is an 8th-grade teacher at Our Sister’s School (OSS) in New Bedford. She was nominated by Rhea Mendes, one of her students who has shown great appreciation for the outpouring support.

“Ms. Mosca is a teacher who you know you can talk to and can tell anything to. She is a STEAM and health teacher. Ms. Mosca started teaching at OSS in 2018, the same year my class started as 5th graders. She grew as a teacher as we grew as students. She’s not your typical teacher who just talks during class. She engages the class with funny things like activities and stories, she supports you during class and out of class. One example is in 6th grade, some of my close friends and I were in an argument and I needed someone to talk to. Out of all the teachers and people who were in the school, I knew the only person who would really listen and understand me was Ms. Mosca. I went to her classroom and told her what was going on and she supported me and help me figure it out. She knows me and other people in my class very well and she knows who she can support us differently because she asks. She wants what is best for us and I am going to miss her so much next year and she needs to be recognized for the impact she makes on people.”
