"I want my students to have strong reading skills, to feel confident and excited about learning new things, to develop a prayerful relationship with God, and to learn how to be of service to others."

Q & A with Mrs. Bahr

 

Highlight of the year:

I love grandparents coming to read each month. But the highlight of every year is when reading “clicks” for each student. It is always a thrill to watch students become confident, independent readers by the end of the year. I love when they become so excited that they can read!

Passion:

I want my students to have strong reading skills, to feel confident and excited about learning new things, to develop a prayerful relationship with God, and to learn how to be of service to others.

Philosophy:

I have learned about many teaching methods over the years. I take the best from each and incorporate those activities into my teaching.

Favorite part of teaching:

I love the children. They teach me so much, and they remind me of what is truly important in life.

Favorite teaching memory:

I once taught a little boy with a very chaotic home life. His grandpa was the only constant loving presence in his life. One day he called me “”Grandpa””. That touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes!”

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

I love many things about St. Martha! We have such a dedicated, talented faculty and staff. I love how St. Martha accepts children with learning differences. We are a family.

My hope for my students:

I hope the basic social and academic skills learned in first grade help them to be kind and successful in the future. I hope they learn to love reading as much as I do!

Fun fact:

I love reading, gardening, and going out to eat. I enjoy volunteering at Ronald McDonald House.

Family is the Best Word

"The teachers are really vested in the kids long after they leave their classes. Family is the best word to describe St. Martha and prepared is the best word to describe my son after his time there.”
