I have been teaching kindergarten for thirty years. Christ King has been “my home away from home” for 8 years as a student and 13 years as a teacher. Education is a gift that lasts a lifetime, and I want to awaken a child’s love of learning and create joyful school memories. Christ King allows me to create respectful, caring bonds with the children and their families, which makes for a wonderful kindergarten experience. Join us as together we play more, laugh, hug and work hard. Please do not hesitate to contact me.
I have been teaching for 3 years, all at Christ King, and I am currently attending Mount Mary to pursue my masters in Arts in Education and a reading license. My favorite thing about working at Christ King is the support from families and staff. There is such a strong sense of community, and I feel truly valued and appreciated as a teacher. I absolutely love working with the little ones and couldn’t see myself working at any other grade level. They are so curious and passionate about learning, and they have such an intrinsic motivation to learn new things. Please feel free to contact me anytime.
I am happy to say this marks my 11th year as an educator at Christ King School, the past nine being spent in kindergarten. I believe strongly in Catholic education and have been very fortunate to have remained in the field for more than 30 years. Every day I look forward to guiding, stimulating and encouraging my students through carefully planned activities that allow them to interact and learn with and from each other. The classroom is our living laboratory where we discover and learn through experimentation and investigation. We sing, dance, play, read and create every day! Kindergarten should be a happy time for everyone, therefore, open communication and partnering with our outstanding parents is paramount to a successful year. I feel so blessed and can’t imagine working anywhere else!
I have 8 years of teaching experience in Kindergarten. This is my 5th year at Christ King School. My husband Dave and I have been parish members since 2007. Our three youngest children currently attend CK and are in grades four, six, and eight. Our fourth and oldest child graduated eighth grade last spring. Christ King truly feels like my home away from home. When I am not teaching, you will see me around campus at Mass, sporting events and community gatherings. My teaching position enables me to give back to the very same loving community where we are raising our children. For as long as I can remember I have always been around children and found myself being inspired by their energy and love for learning. With each new teaching year, I look forward to the new hearts and minds I will touch in my class. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Christ King is a caring, welcoming, community of people who make everyone feel at home. I am happy to help parents and students in any way I can. Please never hesitate to contact me.

Hi! I have 14 years of teaching experience, and this is my 13th year at Christ King School teaching third grade! My desire for becoming a teacher came from my social work experiences, working with families and children everyday and wanting to make a difference in the community. I enjoy being a strong role model for children and utilizing my Catholic faith to make this possible. My vision for teaching is to promote a student-centered classroom, where all students feel a sense of belonging. The one thing I love most about Christ King is the opportunity to teach Religion as part of our everyday curriculum and share our mission statement to recognize Jesus in ourselves and others. Please do not hesitate to ask me for any assistance or help with questions about our school. I embrace an open door policy, and encourage parent involvement.

I graduated from UW-La Crosse in 2014 with a major in elementary education and minors in Spanish and teaching English as a second language.

This year I am excited to start my second year teaching 5th grade at CK! Teaching is my passion because I love creating meaningful relationships with my students and helping them become lifelong learners. I have been blessed to work in an environment that is so welcoming and instills the same values I cherish. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
I have been teaching for 5 years, and this is my second year at Christ King as one of the 5th-grade teachers. Prior to coming to Christ King, I taught both computers and middle school math. I have coached at the middle school and high school levels. When I joined the amazing staff of Christ King last year, I was awed at the sense of community. That feeling of togetherness and support has been one of the things I enjoy most about being here. Being surrounded by wonderful students, families, and faculty makes coming to work so enjoyable. I love teaching 5th grade and helping to prepare the students for middle school. You can contact me by e-mail or in person with any questions you may have.
I have been very blessed to be a Catholic educator for the past 23 years. During my 23 years in education, I have spent 14 years as a Catholic school principal and 9 years as a Catholic school teacher. This is my first year of teaching middle school Religion at Christ King, and I am very excited to bring the teachings of the Catholic faith to the students. I enjoy the daily contact with the students, and their energy and enthusiasm is contagious. I am always open to parent communication, so please be free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
I decided to become a teacher during my junior year at Boston College. Since that was late in the game, I minored in Education, and immediately went to UW-Madison after graduation, where I received my Master’s in Curriculum and Instruction. I then taught fourth grade for three years in MPS. That was followed by four years in WAWM teaching third and fourth grades. When my oldest turned one, I decided to stay home with my children. About twelve years later, I re-entered education and started teaching Middle School Math at Christ King. I feel very blessed and love my job. I thoroughly enjoy working with the middle school students. Christ King is a very special school!
This school year marks my sixth year of teaching and my third year at Christ King School.

Please contact me via e-mail with any questions you have.
I feel extremely blessed to say that this will be my 35th year at Christ King School! I came to Christ King in 1981, left for one year in 1984 to take a position in Austria to sharpen my skills in teaching German, and returned again to Christ King to resume teaching middle level English/Literature as well as German. I currently teach 6th, 7th, and 8th grade literature and look forward to everyday I spend with my students and colleagues! We approach the study of literature, classic as well as modern, through avenues of history, psychology, theology, and philosophy through critical thinking, creative writing, and go beyond print to real world application. I approach my students as did the famous philosopher, writer, and teacher, Goethe, “Treat people as if they were what they ought to be and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” Please do not hesitate to email me or feel free to call if you have any questions, concerns, or needs. We are all family at Christ King and we can overcome any obstacle and more importantly achieve great things in the name of God for our children when we work together!

This will be my third year teaching grade school Spanish, and it is a privilege to add Christ King to my rotation. I also teach Spanish at St. Leonard in Muskego, St. John the Evangelist in Greenfield, and St. Joseph in Big Bend. Wherever I go, I try to bring a spirit of enthusiasm and caring. I believe that if learning can be humorous and musical, it will also be memorable. (I love to sing in the classroom!) Before teaching Spanish in the Catholic schools, I taught for two years at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee while earning my Master's degree in Spanish Translation. Though I am new to the Christ King community, I am already full of appreciation for the warm welcomes I have received, and the support that has been offered to me. I welcome communication from both parents and students, and I look forward to a great year!
