Mrs. Kathie Onkka - Room P2
Hello, I'm Mrs. Onkka, and I teach preschool. This is my 21st year at St. Vincent de Paul School and my 11th year as a preschool teacher. I previously worked as a teacher associate in kindergarten and first grade. Prior to that, I taught preschool for over 10 years. I received my Bachelor of Science from UNL and my Master of Arts in Teaching from the College of Saint Mary.
Our goals in preschool include providing a Catholic environment where...
*Each child will be able to experience God's love and grow in a relationship with God.
*Each child's social and emotional development is fostered.
*Language, literacy, and listening skills are developed and encouraged.
*Opportunities are given for the development of fine and large motor skills.
*Creativity, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills are fostered.
*Each child's individuality with regard to life experiences and traditions is valued.
In addition, we are blessed to have two teacher associates working with us in preschool/pre-kindergarten. Mrs. Suzanne Kerr is the teacher associate for the 2-day and 3-day morning classes while Mrs. Christine Piernicky is the teacher associate for the 5-day afternoon class.
