About The Teacher

The 2017-2018 school year marks my twenty-third year at St. Matthew.  
Some background on me...

My four children all graduated from St. Matthew.

Frank is a physician and a lieutenant in the US Navy. He and his young 
family live in Maryland. 

My second, Fr. Michael Hartge was ordained a priest for the Diocese of 
Columbus on May 30th 2015, and he is a Pastor in Perry County

Margaret is a Theology teacher at Bishop Hartley
Joseph, my youngest, lives in New Haven Connecticut as a research assistant at Yale University

My husband Frank is a native of the Detroit area and is a proud graduate 
of the University of Michigan. We celebrated our 36th wedding anniversary 
this summer!
Raised in Milwaukee, I attended Catholic grade school and high school, and 
graduated from Mount Mary College. I taught fourth grade at Mother of Good 
Counsel Catholic School in Milwaukee for eight years. I am active in  
parish ministries and other apostolates: Extraordinary Minister of Holy 
Communion, Hand Bell Choir, Bereavement Committee, Perpetual Adoration, 
and Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. 

During the 2013-14 school year, along with three other St. Matthew 
teachers, I was recognized as a Master Teacher by the Diocese of Columbus 
Office of Catholic Schools.

Mission For The Class

My mission is to provide a safe, comfortable, loving, fun-filled, 
and Catholic environment for your child.  I want every child to gain 
a deep love for learning. My goal is for every child to be working to 
his or her potential academically, socially, and spiritually.
