Our School Secretary

Mrs. Ditzler’s career started at Sacred Heart School in 1985 as a volunteer when her two youngest children attended Sacred Heart School. A year later she started her employment part-time and then went full-time the year after that. She wears many hats as the secretary, sometimes a few at the same time. She enjoys seeing former students bringing their children to Sacred Heart School so they too can receive the quality education like they received. Former students also realize the value of a school with the IHM sister’s presence.

Mrs. Ditzler has been blessed with three children and three grandchildren, one of whom is a little saint in Heaven. One of her favorite charities is “The Drew Michael Taylor Foundation” which is for her grandson, Drew. This was created to honor his life and is serving many other children and their families who have also suffered a loss of a loved one in their lives.

Her two hobbies are jewelry making and jogging as a member of Drew’s Crew, both which benefit Drew’s Foundation.
