Peoria Notre Dame
Getting to Know Miss Santen:
- This is my fourth year teaching at Notre Dame. I am also an alum of PND, so my Irish pride is strong! I was born and raised in Peoria and I attended St. Phil's for grade school. After Notre Dame, I went to college at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale and received my Bachelors in Mass Communications- Radio and Television Broadcasting. After SIU, I went to ISU to earn my teaching degree in Communication Studies- Secondary Education.
- I am the Freshman Girls Basketball coach here at PND.
- I am involved with Easterseals here in Peoria and I also moderate our own Easterseals Club at school.
- My 5 year old beagle, named Stanley, takes up a lot of my free time but it's okay because he is one of the best dogs you'll ever meet! He is named after Stan Musial, one of the greatest baseball players to date-- Which also makes me a HUGE St. Louis Cardinals fan!
- I love to travel and visit new places!
- Public speaking is my passion and I am extremely passionate to work with the youth and teach them a more comfortable approach in speaking in front of others :)
I use Google Classroom as my website during class.
Each student will be "invited" to the Google Classroom designated to their specific section. I will also share my Google Classroom sites with parents once we get class going so that parents can stay updated on assignments, announcements, speeches, and anything important to know about Speech class.
