Meet the Teacher

Welcome! My name is Mrs. Thuel (formally Miss Shuster). This is my third year teaching fourth grade at St. Ann School. I am looking forward to a rewarding year that will be educational and fun! Here are a few things about me: This past summer I just got married! I love to read, my favorite foods are ice cream and tacos, and I have two cats. This year I will be teaching Religion for both 4A and 4B while Miss Knecht teaches Language Arts. Miss Knecht and I will also be switching for math. If you have any questions or need to contact me feel free to email me.
