Wauwatosa Catholic will be the first Catholic International Baccalaureate K3 to 8th grade school in this area. It is a new school opening in the fall of 2011, sponsored by St. Pius X and St. Bernard Parishes. This blog will update the community on its newest school. Visit www.wauwatosacatholic.org for more information.
During the 2012-2013 school year, Wauwatosa Catholic School is pleased to announce that we have hired four new faculty members to staff the three K4 classrooms and the two K5 classrooms. Our K4 program has two all-day classes and one am/pm class. The K5 classrooms are both full day.
The newest additions to the Wauwatosa Catholic School K3-8 faculty are: Jessica Reddy (K5), Megan Cerbins, Rachel Robinson, and Melissa Zlinsky.
Additionally, families were sent the following information from Father Bob Marsicek last Friday, July 13th. Welcome Mrs. Hernandez!
"I am pleased to be able to share the news with you that we have hired Mrs. Heidi Hernandez to be principal of Wauwatosa Catholic School.
Mrs. Hernandez comes to us with a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Marian University and a Master's Degree in Administrative and Instructional Leadership from Alverno College. A former teacher, she has been working in Catholic schools throughout the Archdiocese as an Instructional Supervisor of teachers that provide Title IA Math and Reading services. Heidi is primed and well qualified to assume her first principalship role here with us at Wauwatosa Catholic.
Please know that under Mrs. Hernandez's leadership, we are fully committed to becoming the first fully authorized Catholic International Baccalaureate (IB) Elementary School in the state of Wisconsin, while maintaining and strengthening our Catholic identity. I would like to thank the search committee members for their skills, dedication and the hundreds of hours they devoted to the process. Here's a sampling of excerpts from committee members' comments in describing Heidi:
"Heidi is a person of faith..."
"... her love of children is evident..."
"... she will be an excellent resource for our teachers..."
"... her organizational skills are impressive..."
"... Heidi is a good communicator..."
"... open-minded and a good listener..."
Please join me in welcoming Heidi and her family (husband, Cesar, and children, Isaiah and Emanuel~our newest K5 student) to the Wauwatosa Catholic family!"
