Pre-K and Middle School Teacher

What do you love most about your work at St. Charles?

What I like most about St. Charles is the students. I enjoy being with them, getting to know them, and learning from them. I enjoy working with all the teachers and the staff. Everyone is very helpful and supportive to each other. It’s fun to come into an environment every day where everyone else enjoys being here. I enjoy the parents and the grandparents. They provide much help and support to each other, the students, and the teachers.

How does our faith-based environment affect what you accomplish with kids?

Teaching in a faith-based environment allows me to teach to the whole child, the intellectual, physical, and spiritual needs. As a teacher, you want to see a child make good decisions and understand why it’s important to make them. Faith provides the substance to build an understanding.

I have been teaching at St. Charles School for 14 years, beginning in 1981. I taught for three years and then stayed home with my children. I returned to teaching in 2005 as the Pre-K teacher and middle school choir teacher. Now I also teach 5th grade language arts. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin, River Falls with a BA in elementary education and early childhood education.

St. Charles school is supported by St. Charles Borromeo Parish in St. Anthony Village, MN.  At St. Charles we provide a solid foundation of Faith & Knowledge for Life.  To schedule a tour, request more information, or enroll a student, please contact us by email or phone (612) 781-2643Spanish option: Si prefiere una respuesta de alguien que habla espanol, por favor indiquelo en su mensaje.
