MEET the TEACHER


My name is Jane Thimons. This is my 31st year teaching first grade at Our Lady of the Most Blessed Sacrament School. I graduated from Slippery Rock University with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I received a Master's Degree in Teaching from the University of Pittsburgh with a teaching internship at Colfax Elementary in Springdale. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 43 years. Our son is a high school English teacher in the Pittsburgh area. Our daughter, a Physician Assistant, is married with four beautiful children. I was a swim coach for 12 years at the Allegheny Valley YMCA and also taught swimming technique for many years at Sylvan Pool. I have been Secretary/Treasurer for the A-K Valley Swim Club League for over 40 years. My faith is very important to me. I am an usher, church sacristan and teacher for the Children's Liturgy. I love teaching, reading, swimming, walking, dancing and, of course, spending time with my family and my precious grandchildren. I am truly blessed.

Thank you for the privilege to work with your child this year. I look forward to watching her/him grow spiritually, academically and socially this year. May God bless him/her always!
