I have been teaching for 21 years, 17 of them at St. Isidore's. My favorite thing about being a teacher is seeing students excited about learning and growing in their educational skills as well as their faith. The best thing about teaching at St. Isidore’s Catholic school is receiving such awesome support from fellow teachers, staff, parents, and students as well as being able to teach and share my Catholic faith. My favorite saint is St. Anthony of Padua.
I have been teaching at St. Isidore's for the past 32 years! I love being with the students, they are such great reminders of God's goodness!
In the classroom...
In the fourth grade, our students develop a love for Christ and each other daily. As teachers, we guide and assist our students as they discover their strengths and desire for learning. Our reading program encourages students to read all types of genre and helps promote the improvement of their comprehension skills. In math, we focus on effective problem solving strategies by applying them to real world problems. During social studies class, our students learn about our great state of Nebraska through its history and current events. Science curriculum is taught with the balance of textbook facts, hands-on activities, and experimentation. In fourth grade, we also work on transitioning into the intermediate grades. Our goal is for students to become independent thinkers and learners.
