Fifth Grade Teachers

Mrs. Sue Kriener (5/6 English, 5 Science)

Started at SJS in 1984                                                                                                                   BA from the University of Northern Iowa with graduate hours from several schools


Why Catholic Schools?

Most of the parishes in our little towns in Iowa had 1st-8th grade schools, and I was educated back in the days when we still had mostly nuns. Mass and all aspects of our daily lives revolved around being Catholic. With this as my foundation, I wanted Catholic schools to be part of my children’s lives also. Being Catholic is a 24/7 job. We don’t stop when we leave church or leave school. It is a part of us. We should be showing who and what we are by our words and actions. I believe that Catholic schools help our children to become the whole person—spiritually, physically, and mentally. I’m proud to be a teacher, parent, and grandparent who is part of Catholic schools.


Mrs. Wenndy Weber (5/6 Reading, 5 S.S.)

Started at SJS in August 0f 1995 and I have taught here since then. 

BA from UNO in December of 1994 in Education with a minor in Psychology.

MA from Concordia University as a Reading Specialist in 2013



Teaching in a Catholic school is more like a vocation than just a job. To me it was a calling to be able to make a difference in a child’s life.  I didn’t feel that would be possible in the public school setting. When I walked through the doors of SJS it was as if I acquired another whole family. Every day someone inspires me, props me up when I am down, and makes me laugh.
