I have taught my entire career at this incredible school!  I believe God guided me here many years ago and that this is my calling.  I enjoy watching the kids grow and learn daily.  The moment when the light bulb goes off is such a rewarding and special feeling!  Getting to know each child and their families personally and in depth in a small school is a special bonus.

I have a husband Jay, three children Jake is an Engineer in Milwaukee, Luke is an Electrician apprentice in Appleton, and Brenna is a freshman at UW-Stout majoring in Environmental science.  I have 5 chickens I incubated in my classroom 3 years ago and of course our class Bearded Dragon, Sanford. I enjoy reading, walking and cooking.

The small classes and family atmosphere at St. Mary School are some of the reasons I have chosen to have my entire teaching career here.  It has been a joy and a privilege to get to know so many wonderful families personally over the years!  I am truly blessed!

I am a mama of two boys, Micah and Owen and proud Mimi (grandma) of two little ones, River and Maylee. We have a funny dog named Mr. Beans who keeps us smiling! Llamas, Q-tips and prunes are a few of my favorite things. I believe food and laughter are two of the best medicines! My Dad is my hero :-)

I love teaching because I am genuinely in awe of a child's natural curiosity, sense of humor, and enthusiasm for the smallest of things. Their innate ability to want to learn more is inspiring to me. I strive for the long-winded stories, teachable moments and seeing the "ah ha" expressions.

Gonring, Kristie.jpg

I have been teaching at St. Mary School since 2006.  In 2002, I graduated from Alverno College with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary/Early childhood education.  I also earned my Master's degree in literacy with an emphasis on elementary education from Grand Canyon University in 2021.  

I live in West Bend with my husband, Pat, and our six kids.  They keep us very busy and are our pride and joy!  We also have a cute dog.  She is a German Shorthair named Hayden.  In my spare time, I love to play the piano, take pictures, and watch sports with my family.

Lemens, Kelsey.jpg

My name is Kelsey Lemens and this is my fourth year teaching at St. Mary’s School. I am originally from Horicon and now I live in West Bend. I lived in California for 4 years and Hawaii for a year before moving back to Wisconsin.  I have a wonderful husband and two daughters.

  

I have taught 8th Grade, Pre-K, 4th Grade, 2nd Grade, and a combined 1st and 2nd Grade Class. I love my current position here at St. Mary’s because our school is truly like a family to me. In my free time, I like to travel and go hiking with my family. I love reading and exploring new places.
