Welcome to the of world of Literature and Language Arts... according to Mrs. Buchta.


I am Mrs. Rhona Buchta and I am the middle school Language Arts and Literature teacher and 6th grade’s Homeroom teacher. My husband, Bill, is an online entrepreneur and we have three children. Our two daughters are in the process of navigating the “adult” world and my youngest is a sophomore in high school. All three had graduated SJS just as I had. I truly believe that St. Joe’s gave my children the gift to handle academic rigor, an understanding of character and integrity, and most of all a strong foundation in their Catholic faith.

As a parent myself, I know that your pride and joy are entering my classroom every day and I thank you for allowing me this wonderful opportunity to be their teacher. I will, with our Lord’s guidance, teach, inspire, motivate, and encourage your child. I promise to share my faith with your child and do what is best for their learning. It may not always look like what your child feels is ideal, but it will be what is best for them to further their academic career.

Every educational journey does not happen alone- we need to work together as a team! “Each child’s success involves a guiding adult’s enthusiasm, support, and involvement that inspires him/her to do their best; and a teacher's passion to teach what they need to learn. Together we can achieve progress and learning.”

I believe that clear communication is an important tool for everyone involved. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions, comments, or concerns through email at rbuchta@stjosephfort.org.

Thank you for your commitment to your child's education and success. I look forward to getting to know you and your child this year!
