We Are Here To Serve You

Our faculty members are not typical instructors. They are passionate, mission-filled, vocational, faithful teachers who choose to work in a faith-based environment that helps young learners become disciples, scholars, athletes and citizens.

All of our teachers (classroom teachers and specialists) have a degree and licenses from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. We also require our substitute teachers to have a degree and license.

Meet Mrs. Shannon Holthaus, our Preschool Teacher!
Hi! I am Mrs. Shannon Holthaus. I have worked at St. Joseph School for three years but I have been a part of the community for quite some time now. I have two children, Lauren and Julia.  They both attended St. Joseph School from K-8th grade.

I went to UW-Stout and have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I grew up in northern Wisconsin and enjoy being near family. My favorite hobbies are gardening, reading, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and running. Along with spending time outdoors with my family.

I love St. Joseph School because it feels like a family. I enjoy working with such wonderful, kind, caring teachers, students and families.
