Mrs. Karla Tranmer has been teaching for more than twenty years and has been a part of the St. James School faculty since 2003. 

Why do you enjoy serving at St. James? I enjoy teaching at St. James because of the supportive school families and the way the teachers and staff get along and work well together. I like that I have been here long enough to see my students as adults and active in the community and Church.

I enjoy reading, spending time with my family and enjoying the variety of animals in and out of my house. My family and I have completed the Nebraska Passport five times, so driving around the state of Nebraska is a summer activity I enjoy.

I have a lot of favorite books so it is hard to choose one. My favorite books as a child were The Little House on the Prairie series, The Secret Garden and the Anne of Green Gables series. I enjoyed these books as a young reader since I felt that I could relate to the characters and learn about their world at the same time.
