My name is Lisa Gearen. I have been teaching First Grade at St. Cletus since 2003. I have an Associate Degree from the College of DuPage in Early Childhood Education. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications from Concordia University. I have a Master’s in Education also from Concordia. I am also a Certified Catechist. I am proud to say that my Aunt Rita Woods taught school here when St. Cletus first opened its doors. She was proud to hear that I had been hired to teach here and follow in her footsteps.
