Why Catholic Education?

This is my first experience with Catholic education. In 2013, I retired from public education and moved to the Omaha area to search for a Catholic education position. It had always been a goal of mine to be able to teach in a Catholic school. It provides me with the opportunity to share a faith based science curriculum with students and help them investigate the incredible world God has provided us.


Mrs. Anne Clark (7th Language Arts)

Anne Clark
Started at SJS in 2018, and has taught kindergarten from 1989-1992 at Bergan Mercy Child Care and 1992-2018 at St. Margaret Mary School
B.A. from College of St. Mary in 1988
Why Catholic Education?                                                                                                        My parents worked for the Catholic Church for over 20 years in the Diocese of Springfield-Cape Girardeau and the Diocese of Wichita. Growing up, I had the privilege of witnessing them living their faith through their work and their everyday lives. When a teaching position opened up at St. Margaret Mary 27 years ago, I knew this was my chance to follow in my parents’ footsteps. Catholic schools are founded in faith and help students realize the full potential of their God-given abilities. These are the very reasons that I have chosen to teach in Catholic Schools for 26 years and why I'm excited to teach at St. James/Seton School.


Mrs. Patty Daly (7/8th Math)

Started at SJS in 2015, and has taught from 1998-2001 in Pipestone, MN and 2001-2005 at Bellevue East HS
B.S. from South Dakota State University in Mathematics
Why Catholic Education?
I was not fortunate enough to grow up in a town that had Catholic schools, but after sending our three kids to St. James/Seton, I knew that my husband and I had made the right choice.  We were so blessed to be surrounded by great families who showed their love for God, as well as the dedicated teachers and staff who continually demonstrate their strong Catholic faith to their students.  I knew that I wanted to be a part of that Catholic family and was blessed to be given the opportunity.


Mr. Doug J. Goebel (7/8th Social Studies)

B.A. from UNO in 1999

M.A. from Nebraska Wesleyan in Historical Studies in 2013

M.S  from Creighton University in School Counseling in 2017


Why Catholic Education? My parents gave me the best gift - a Catholic faith.  I am honored to teach in a Catholic School because I am able to share my morals, values and beliefs with my students, other staff members, and the community. A Catholic education is important to me because I want my own children and all of my students to become the best citizens they can become!  A Catholic education allows and fosters growth and development in our youth.

Mr. Bob Myer (8th Language Arts)

Started at SJS in 2014

B.A. from Indiana University in English, minor in Classical Civilizations

M.A. from American Public University in the Humanities


Why Catholic Education?

It is important that our education has its foundation in faith.  Because we as a community start from a foundation of faith, we can truly help our students search for, discover, and understand the truth and beauty in all the subjects taught at SJS.  Building upon our common foundation, we prepare our students for the challenges of high school and beyond.


Mrs. Becky Walters (7/8th Religion)

B.A. from University of Nebraska-Kearney in Secondary Education, emphasis in English and History
M.A. from University of Nebraska-Kearney in History
M.A. from the Augustine Institute in Theology (graduating in 2018)
Why Catholic Education?
As a product of Catholic schools, I have experienced first hand the effects of great Catholic education. I know that my life would not have been the same without the amazing teachers I've had at Catholic schools in Omaha. These teachers have not only taught, but also modeled the joy that is found in living the Faith. As an educator, I want to be that person for my students, so Catholic education was the only choice for me. I love bringing conversations about our faith an traditions into every subject I teach. I have been blessed to be welcomed into the St. James/Seton family, and I look forward to working with the students and parents to grow in our desire to be close to the Lord.


Jr. High Para: Mrs. Rangel

Started at SJS in 2015

Why Catholic Education?
My husband and I are blessed to be able to send our children to a Catholic school where they can get a quality education, with high standards, and learn about their faith. I am excited to be a part of the SJS family, where we can openly share and learn that God is present and active in our lives and in the world.
