My name is Sister Mary Guadalupe and I am teaching 6th grade at St. James this year. I have taught the previous 15 years in three different schools in our diocese—St. Joseph School in Lincoln, St Peter School in Lincoln and St. Vincent de Paul School in Seward. Throughout my time in education I’ve had the opportunity to teach 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade students. My most recent experience was teaching junior high Math and Religion at St. Peter School. I loved teaching Math and Religion and am also very excited to be able to teach the children all subjects this year and have to opportunity to make more connections between the different subjects.
Some of my favorite things to do in my free time are play sports, ride bikes, read, make rosaries and play games with my Sisters. One of my long term dreams is to visit the shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico and spend time praying and receiving her maternal love in the spot where she spoke to Juan Diego nearly 500 years ago.
I am grateful to be part of the St. James family and have the opportunity to serve the children and families here as we all strive to allow Jesus to form and transform us to be more and more in His image.
