My name is Theresa A. Rolenz and I am a Kindergarten teacher. This will be my 12th full year working with the wonderful staff and students at St. Augustine school. Prior to teaching Kindergarten, I taught third grade here for three years and loved every minute of it. I am a graduate from the University of Akron and have my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Family and Child Development. My favorite part of teaching is watching the children grow throughout the year. I love helping to shape the minds of ur little ones and instilling the Catholic faith into their hearts. When I am not teaching, I spend most of my time with my hudband and 3 children; Emma, 14, Kylee 10, and Austin 4. We love to shop, go to sporting events and attend concerts together. I enjoy running, listning to music, watching my daughter's cheer and my son play soccer. I am creative, enthusiastic and love to have lots of FUN!
My name is Natalie Cook, and I am a first grade teacher here at St. Augustine School. I am an alum of St. Augustine School and a member of the church. I attended Norton High School and went on to college at Ursuline College in Pepper Pike, OH. While at Ursuline, I played basketball and studied Early Childhood Education. I graduated from Ursuline in May, 2014 and have recenty received my Master's degree from Walsh University. This will be my sixth year teaching at St. A's and I also have coached basketball at Norton for the past 6 years. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, biking, going to the movies and traveling.
I am Miss Natalie McCulligan. I am the second grade teacher at St. Augustine School. This is my 25th year of teaching. I have been a member of St. Augustine Church my whole life. I was a St. Augustine School graduate in 1986. My father, brothers, daughter and son are also St. Augustine School graduates. I taught fourth grade for six years at Immaculate Conception School. I have taught a variety of grades over the past 19 years at St. Augustine. I have taught fifth, fourth, third, eighth, and second. I love the challenges and rewards each grade level brings. My favorite part of teaching second grade is teaching the sacraments. It is such a joy being a part of their special day.
I have two wonderful children. My daughter is 23 and works at Walt Disney World. My son Lucas is 18 and attends Akron Wayne College. If you come into my classroom, you'll see I'm a Disney fanatic!
My name is Sister Nan Zeimet and I am a sister of Notre Dame from Chardon, Ohio. I moved to Ohio from Kansas in 2005 to enter the congregation and have been a vowed member for ten years.
I took my education classes for my teaching license at Notre Dame College in Ohio. I have a BA from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Kansas as well as my Master's Degree with a focus in Education from Baker University in Kansas.
I have been a licensed elementary teacher for eight years. I taught my first five years (mostly 3rd grade) at an inner city Catholic school in Cleveland. I then moved to Chardon and did substitute teaching K-4 for two years in several Catholic elementary schools in the area. I'm excited about teaching third grade again here at St. Augustine School.
Seven years ago, I helped found an after school program on the near west side of Cleveland called House of Champions where I volunteer and am a member of the Board of Directors. HOC services selected children from two area inner city Catholic schools from 2:30-8:00 pm where they learn life skills in a family-like atmosphere.
In my spare time, I love to line dance and go bowling.

My name is Donna Rovan and I am so happy to be a part of the wonderful staff here at St. Augustine School. I am the fourth grade teacher and most of my experience has been teaching the fourth grade. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, PA and went to St. Joseph's University where I received my degree in Education. I have been a teacher for over ten years andhave also worked as a reporter for the Akron Beacon Journal. I have also worked in business and customer service positions. My first love is teaching, and I hope that my experience and excitement to learn are the best ingredients for a great year! I am married to my great husband, Marty, who went to St. Augustine's when he was a child. I have two daughters and I live in Canton. I love to write, and swim and I really love the beach! Fourth grade can b a tough year, but with patience, encouragement and faith, we can master this amazing year. I look forward to working with your children and offer my prayers and blessings for a wonderful unforgettable year.
