Mrs. Rita Jean Prugar has been a life-long member of the Becahi community. She has always found a sense of pride in wearing the brown and gold, and hopes that she can pass that love and pride on to her students. After graduating from Bethlehem Catholic she attended DeSales University and attained a B.A. in History with minors in Art History and English.
Mrs. Prugar taught history during the 2006-2007 school year at a sister high school in the Allentown Diocese before coming home to Becahi in the fall of 2007 . When she first joined the faculty she taught American Government and in the fall of 2011 she made the jump to World History to follow her passion. Mrs. Prugar is thrilled to be able to share her love of history at a place that helped shape her into the student, educator and mentor she has become.
