Board of Education
We are a small team of talented professionals with a wide range of skills and experience, who are committed to the excellence of St. John’s School. Click here for the BOE Minutes.
I joined the Board in May 2018. I have been a member of St. John’s since April 2016. I am also a lector and commentator, and I help out with the coffee bar and the It’s All About the Weekend Committee. I am on the Board because I want to help the students of St. John’s have the best education possible, and have the guiding presence of Jesus in their lives at all times.

I am a stay-at-home mom and lifelong member of St. John Parish. This is my second term on the Board of Education. My past experience was several years ago, at which time I assisted in the development and implementation of the Golden Ticket Event, FACTS Tuition Assistance, Free Kindergarten, and Parish & School Marketing programs. It is through this experience and involvement within the Parish, School, and Community over the years, I understand the history, tradition, and academic excellence St. John’s has prided itself with and strives to uphold. I believe strongly in catholic education and want to serve any way I can to ensure St. John School’s vitality well in to the future. I am married to Ryan, and together we have 4 children.
I am the owner of Big Apple Bagels in Appleton and a graduate of St. John’s, as well as a lifelong member of the parish. I joined the board in 2018 and love to be part of discussing how to keep St. John’s traditions alive, but also stay current with the future needs of students.
I have five children going through St. John School, and have been a member of the parish for 15 years. I have been on the Board since April 2018. I am currently a stay-at-home mom and have a degree in Dental Hygiene. I have been a track coach for SJS for 4 years, I volunteer in the classrooms, in the lunch room, and for various school and parish events. I chose to join the Board because I care about the students, educators, and parents of SJS. I want to help hold our education at the highest standard possible and allow our students to grow in their faith by following Christ’s example.
I am the Technology Services Project Manager for a local school district, wife, and mother to two daughters attending St. John School. As a graduate of St. John School, and a lifelong member of the St. John Nepomucene Catholic Community, I am driven to keep the traditions, academic excellence and the Catholic faith as integral parts of student life here. This is my second term on the Board of Education.
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.
I am a graduate of St. John’s and a lifelong parish member. My wife Kathii works in the parish office, and we are the parents of four adult children and proud grandparents of seven. I have been involved in coaching basketball at St. John’s for the past 20 years.
