Teacher Bios

WHY?

Prospective parents have lots of choices for their children's education. We believe that a St. Timothy education offers unique advantages, and we're working to let more prospective parents know about our small and mighty school! Here, students receive individual attention, families are supported by a vibrant and engaged community, and we are all united in celebration of our shared Catholic faith.

Prospective parents like to learn about the teachers who will teach and guide their children. Parents in Mrs. Johnson's class have shared how her blog was a big factor in choosing St. Timothy. Getting a feel for the classroom and the teacher made them excited to be a part of St. Timothy School. We have such a great faculty - we're eager for prospective parents to get to know you.

We did an informal survey of parents of different ages and learned:

  • All parents want to know that their children's teachers are well-educated and qualified to teach their children.
  • All parents are eager to discover that you are real, relatable human beings who are excited to help their children learn and grow.
  • Parents of children in K - 3 are particularly interested in knowing that you will be kind and loving.
  • Parents in grades 4 and 5 are beginning to shift their focus toward academics and personal responsibility.
  • Middle school parents are interested to learn how you will help build the foundational skills to prepare them for academic and social success in high school and beyond.
  • All parents want to know that teachers are accessible and responsive.
