Katherine Abar

Hello, my name is Katherine Abar and after many years of substitute teaching and part time teaching at STM I am pleased to join the staff on a full time basis.  Before I got married and started a family I taught for eight years in Jefferson County.  After that I took 11 years off to stay home with my children.  My husband and I have four children, all of whom attend STM.  When our youngest entered Kindergarten this Fall the transition was perfectly timed and I believe blessed by God.  I am truly grateful to be a member of the STM staff and am looking froward to a successful year!

As a parent and teacher in the STM community I have a unique perspective on the importance of giving my students the very best I have to offer.  I look forward to a partnership with parents along with staff and administration in which we can watch our students grow and learn in a well-rounded and holy manner.  I look forward to meeting everyone and I welcome any and all questions and comments.
