Preschool Teacher

St. John's has an amazing community feel that makes all of our children young and old enjoy coming here. I enjoy working with our preschoolers and seeing them get enthused about learning. This year I am also looking forward to teaching science to the upper grades.

Sarah Hitzeroth will be working with the preschool students for the full day this year. With the increase in our preschool enrollment, we have added a new preschool room for which Sarah has designed the teaching space. She loves doing hands-on activities with the students so teaching preschool is an excellent match for her skills. She had previously worked with St. John's after-school care program where she learned to know many of the students throughout the school.

Sarah graduated from the University of Dubuque with a Bachelor of Science degree in Secondary Education, making the Dean's List four semesters. While in college she sang in the choir and traveled to the East Coast as well as Hawaii.

St. John's has been a part of her husband's family for the last few generations, and they all attended school here. She and her husband, Joseph, welcomed a second son this summer named Theo, and now his big brother Eli is ready to start preschool. She feels blessed that he will be in such a caring and successful environment where each child receives loving care specified to their needs.
