I want to extend a special welcome to our new friends and a warm welcome to our returning friends. If you are not yet part of the Sacred Heart School Family, I invite you to visit our classrooms and inquire about the special, “Going Above and Beyond” program offered here at Sacred Heart School.
My focus as 2nd Grade Teacher is to provide, “next best step” for each student and to grow as much as possible in all subject areas. I will base all lessons on the Indiana Academic Standards and ultimately conclude with our “SWBAT” – Students Will Be Able To goals. STREAM – Science, Technology, Religion, the Arts, and Math units will actively be added to our curriculum. Enrichment, re-inforcement, and remediated will be supported with our IXL computer program. IXL standards will be incorporated in both Math and Language Arts.
Religion will take special focus during this 2nd grade year as we prepare for the Sacrements of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist!
Throughout all our time together this year, we mix our hard work with happy times of friendship and fun ways of learning!
I am so glad each and every one of you is here at Sacred Heart School! Teaching at SHS is a joy and an honor.
Let the fun and work begin!
Educationally yours in Christ,
It is my pleasure to begin my tenth year at Sacred Heart School.
I am in my 40th year in education. Before coming to Sacred Heart School I was a Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade teacher for the Marion Community Public Schools for 10 years. In 2005 I was honored as, “The Teacher of the Year” for the Marion Community Schools. I have also been honored to receive the, “Light of Learning Award” twice here at Sacred Heart.
My first 20 years were spent in the Michigan City Catholic Schools where I taught grades Kindergarten through 4th grade.
I have been married to my husband, Jim, for 35 years. We have 2 grown children: Michele (35) who works in the Marketing Division for Eli Lily. Michele lives with her husband, Paul, in Indianapolis. They have a charming little boy named, Henry. He is our first grandbaby! They are expecting their second son on September 30th. Our son, Jimmy (31) is Owner of Hoosier Powder Coating in Nappanee. He is married to his wife, Stephanie. They have a delightful little girl named, Elizabeth, who was born on Christmas Day! They had their second child, James, last December. They own a home here in Warsaw. Having our first two grandchildren has been a tremendous joy for us and we look forward to #4!
Mr. Faroh and I are the very busy owners of a 6 year old Yorkie. “Dino” is a feisty eight pounder with the mindset of a 50 pounder! We are enjoying watching him learn to behave and become part of the family.
It is truly my honor and pleasure to, again, be part of the Sacred Heart School staff. I enjoy working with the children and families of this wonderful school!
