"Power of Teaching" forum at BYU Feb. 19 to feature Ardeth G. Kapp

Brigham Young University’s David O. McKay School of Education presents a “Power of Teaching” forum by Ardeth G. Kapp Thursday, Feb. 19, at 11 a.m. in B-190 Joseph F. Smith Building.

The “Power of Teaching” lecture series was designed to support and recruit education majors. All are invited to attend.

While Kapp was serving as the general president of the Young Women of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the values and theme recited by young women worldwide were first adopted. She also served with her husband, Heber, who was called as the president of the Canada Vancouver Mission, and then as the president of the Cardston Alberta Temple. Kapp was set apart as the matron of the Cardston Alberta Temple exactly 50 years after being married there.

A native of Alberta, Canada, Kapp received a bachelor's degree in education from University of Utah and a master's degree in curriculum development from BYU. She taught elementary school and also supervised student teachers for BYU.

She has written several books including “Miracles in Pinafores and Bluejeans,” “I Walk by Faith” and “The Gentle Touch,” in which she recorded many of her experiences as a teacher. Her biography, “Stand As a Witness,” was published in 2005. Kapp has served on the Board of Trustees for BYU and serves on the Board of Directors for Deseret Book.
