Extensive Classroom Experience
Teachers have over 700 years of combined teaching experience. Several have worked as administrators or even principals before joining us here at St. Thomas More.
Over 10 teachers have been at St. Thomas More for more than 15 years.
Engaged in the Community
Teachers are well rounded, speaking foreign languages such as Spanish, Polish, French, German, and Ukrainian. Almost all teachers volunteer in some way in their community and/or church. They even find time to enjoy hobbies such as running, stargazing, ballroom dancing, reading, traveling, snorkeling and gardening.
In Their Own Words
“I love STM because I love uniforms, homework, and reading.”
—Natasha, 1st Grade
“I like STM because our teachers are nice, and we meet new friends.”
—Gianna, 2nd Grade
“I love STM because I love the kindness that I see through my classmates. Our school encourages us to see Jesus through our classmates and that is what I see and love.”
—Jordan, 5th Grade
“We are so extremely fortunate that we have the privilege of going to a Catholic school. I really enjoy learning about my religion and taking what I learn to a greater extent and applying it to my everyday life. St. Thomas More also has fabulous teachers. Our teachers not only educate us with so many things, but they make learning fun.”
—Maddie, 7th Grade
