Mr. Robert Pyles, Principal of Our Lady of Refuge School, is pleased to announce that Mrs. Katie Garber is returning to the school faculty as our full time 5th grade Teacher. Mrs. Garber was a substitute teacher at OLR last year.
Mrs. Garber, her husband and daughter moved back to Michigan last year after living in Chicago for eleven years. She taught 4th grade for 8 years in Chicago and loves teaching the intermediate grades.
“I believe that learning happens in many ways and teachers need to use multiple teaching strategies so that each child can reach their full potential. I also think it’s important that students, teachers, and parents need to communicate in order for children to become life-long learners, critical thinkers, and responsible citizens. So please let me know if you have any questions or concerns, I am looking forward to a great school year!”
Mr. Pyles commented, “I am pleased to have Mrs. Garber join our faculty on a full time basis. Her experience and familiarity with OLR will be a key asset as we continue to develop and strengthen our curriculum to meet the needs of our students both today and into the future.”
