Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Geri Hartnett
Greetings! I am (Mrs.) Geri Hartnett. I have been the third grade teacher at St. Jude School for the past twenty years. My teaching experience prior to coming to St. Jude included teaching kindergarten, first, and fourth grades, but third grade truly is my favorite. I received both my undergraduate degree and graduate degree from Holy Family University. I am also a certified Reading Specialist.
“To be entrusted with the teaching of the young is a great gift ...” (Saint John Baptist De La Salle). I have always wanted to be a catholic school teacher. I am a product of catholic school from elementary school all the way through to college. Teaching reading is my passion, but teaching religion is my calling. I love being able to share my faith with my students, and I truly believe my own faith grows because I have the opportunity to see the face of Jesus every day in the faces of these wonderful children. I am blessed and grateful to be a member of the St. Jude Family.
