Cass Toeppler


I have been a wife to my husband Matt for the past 21 years. We have 4 children ages 12-18 years old. Our twin 7th graders were so blessed to join the St. Johns community during the 2020-2021 school year. I also work full time as  a Nurse Practitioner in a local health care facility. As a family, we are committed to keeping strong Christian faith values as an integral part of who we are. As a new member to the St. Johns community, I come to the board with a passion for both faith and academic excellence as well as a fresh set of eyes.  This is my first term on the Board of Education.

Steve Andres

I am married with four children and five grandchildren.  I served for 34 years on Little Chute Fire Department and recently retired in the fall of 2020.   My grandson goes to St. John School so I wanted to get involved with the school board.    This community means a lot to me and I’m happy to be a part of it. 

Betsy Hermus

I am a retired nurse and lifelong member of St. John’s church, and I also attended St. John’s grade school.  This is my first term on the Board of Education.  I’m a grandmother of eight, six of which currently attend St. John’s , thus my commitment to Catholic education.
I am married to Dan and have three grown children Melissa, Emily and Ben.  I look forward to serving on the board.

Kelly Lamers

As a life long member of St. John’s church and school, wife, mother of two littles, Kindergarten and First Grade teacher in a local charter school, and passion for educating the whole child, I find enthusiasm in helping support the goal of the Catholic school traditions. My husband and I are committed to instilling Christian faith values as an integral part of our family. We look forward to getting our children involved in all the community has to offer. This is my first term on the Board of Education.

Jenny O’Connell

My husband, Tim, and I became members of St. John Nepomucene after moving here in 2000.  Having both attended Catholic schools as children, Tim and I had always agreed that our children would attend as well. St. John’s was an easy decision when choosing who to entrust our children to. SJS was a home for our family like no other.  I plan to use my position to continue the tradition of excellence at SJS and help preserve the loving, faith-filled, Christian atmosphere that makes this school so special.  I work alongside my husband and daughter at O’Connell Funeral Home, as owner and licensed funeral director. I am also a member of the Little Chute Kiwanis Club, through which I am responsible for organizing the Christmas Parade.
