Mrs. Catherine Schaefer
Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Catherine Schaefer and I am delighted to have the privilege of teaching in my home parish. My faith has led me to teach in a Catholic school where I can bring Jesus into our classroom each day. This year marks my 12th year as a full-time teacher at St. Jude School. I am grateful to be a part of the spiritual and educational community at SJS.
I have taught 3rd grade, 5th grade, Technology and Kindergarten. Ten of my twelve years at St. Jude School have been spent teaching Kindergarten children. After taking a break from teaching to raise my three children, I returned to St. Jude in 2014, working as an aide, technology teacher, and now a full-time Kindergarten teacher. I am also a proud staff member of our CARES program. My educational background is a BA in Elementary Education from Holy Family University.
Who is Mrs. Schaefer? Well, my favorite color is black. I love to drink coffee and eat cookies. I have three children, Christopher (22), Ryleigh (11), and Reece (9), all attendees of St. Jude School. My husband, Kevin, is a proud graduate of SJS.
I have coached St. Jude CYO Girls Basketball, Soccer and Softball. I currently coach Cheerleading for PA Cheer Club, as well as, the St. Jude CYO Junior Jags.
I love to coach cheer, teach children, and enjoy snuggle time with my family. I live in Hatfield with my children and husband Kevin.
