Mrs. Hallie Flanagan - 1st Grade
As a former student of All Saints, I feel that All Saints gave me a sense of pride, community, support, and encouragement to follow my dreams. At a very young age I knew that I had the desire to teach. I credit the teachers that I had at All Saints for inspiring in me to follow my love of teaching and giving me the ambition and the tools to achieve my dreams.
I attended the University of Missouri St. Louis and received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education in May 1994. I also hold additional certification in Middle School English and Middle School Social Studies. I have also received a degree in Religious Education from the Paul VI Institute. I am currently attending Lindenwood University and seeking a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education with additional certification in Special Education.
I began my teaching career at Sts. Joachim and Ann School in 1994. I taught Primary Two for one year and Primary One for three years. In 1998 I returned to my roots and began teaching Primary One at All Saints. I am proud to be a part of a school that holds such high standards and pushes for academic excellence.
I married to a wonderful husband and have two wonderful girls. My oldest daughter attends All Saints and although my youngest hasn’t started school yet, I see All Saints in her future as well.
Mrs. Tricia Radeke - 2nd Grade
I received my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education from the University of Missouri-Saint Louis in 2000. After receiving my teaching certificate, I was hired as a first grade teacher at Sacred Heart School in Florissant, where I taught for three years. When I moved to St. Peters, I began looking for a job closer to home and was fortunate to be hired on as a Primary One teacher at All Saints School.
This is my ninth year at All Saints. I taught first grade for three years, then moved to third for a year, and now I am teaching second grade for my fifth year.
I truly enjoy working at All Saints School and I feel blessed to be a part of such a supportive and caring parish.
Miss Mary Mohan - 2nd Grade
I received my B.S in Education from the University of Missouri, St. Louis. During my teaching career I have taught at various grade levels. I have been teaching at All Saints, St. Peters, for 17 years.
I come from a large Irish family. I have three older brothers and an older and younger sister. I am the proud Aunt of seven nieces and three nephews. I grew up in University City, Missouri. I attended Christ The King Elementary and Ursuline Academy High School. I lived in California for seven years, and then came back to Missouri.
I love to read, visit friends, and travel. My wish is to one day go to Ireland!
Mrs. Addie Govero - 3rd Grade
I have a wonderful husband, Mike, and four beautiful children, Peyton, Belle, Brady, and Camden.
I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from Lindenwood University. I am currently attending Lindenwood seeking my PhD in Educational Instruction and Leadership.
This is my 10th year teaching at All Saints and I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful Catholic school and parish community.
I am truly enjoying my vocation as a teacher and grateful for all of the gifts that God has blessed me with.
Mrs. Maria Ratermann - 3rd Grade
I am so excited to be teaching at All Saints School once again. Years ago, I taught Second grade here before leaving to raise my children. I returned as a parent volunteer when my daughter started Kindergarten. I then became a substitute teacher, eventually returning to my love of teaching in the classroom full time. This is my third year teaching Third grade.
I currently have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, and my Religious certification. Formerly, I taught Pre-K at Sacred Heart in Florissant. During my eight years away from All Saints I taught piano while staying home with my children.
My husband, Lyle, is employed by Propper International in St. Charles as a computer programmer. He is the equipment manager for the All Saints T-Ball/Softball/Baseball program. We have two wonderful children, Lydia is our oldest and Spencer is her younger brother, they both attend All Saints. I enjoy reading, camping and spending time with my family in my spare time.
Mrs. Suzanne Wanninger - 4th Grade
I received a B.S. degree in Education, PreK-8, from the University of Missouri-Columbia. Later I obtained a Master’s degree in Special Education at the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am looking forward to another art class at the St. Charles Community College because of my interest and love of art.
My teaching experiences and education have provided me with much insight in the behaviors and development of children. I taught a parent/infant class at S.L.A.R.C. and worked in conjunction with occupational and physical therapists. At the United Services I taught Preschool language delayed, and behavior disordered children. I have worked in the public school districts of Camden County, Lincoln County, Ritnour and Ferguson/Florissant. In the Francis Howell district I was a Parent Educator for the Parents As Teachers program.
My husband, Tim, and I have been married for 29 years! We have three children, Marc, Matt and Lauren, whom we are very proud of. We have lived in St. Charles since 1987 and are members of Sts. Joachim and Ann Parish.
I’m currently in my 13th year of teaching at All Saints School, and have really enjoyed being a part of this school, church, and staff. I have especially loved teaching your children and I constantly learn from them!
Mrs. Barb Kieffer - 4th Grade
I am a member of Sacred Heart Parish in Elsberry, Missouri.
I am a product of Catholic education and strongly believe in the importance of the system. I have devoted my entire teaching career to local schools within the St. Louis Archdiocese.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Lindenwood College, and a Master’s Degree in Elementary School Administration from UMSL. I hold a catechist certification from the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
I reside in the country on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. I share my home with my husband Marty, and our two sons, David and Patrick. For company we have a Boxer named Rocky. I love to write and my dream job would be to write textbooks.
Mrs. Karen Richau -5th Grade
I was born in raised in St. Louis, but have lived in Buffalo, NY, Rochester, NY, Lexington, KY, and Boston, MA. I have taught in both public and Catholic Schools. The majority of my experience has been in grades six through eight, but during my four years in Rochester I had the opportunity to teach Gifted Education in twenty-seven schools. This afforded me the opportunity to work in grade levels kindergarten through six and in all subject areas.
I obtained my Bachelor and Masters degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in English from Southeast Missouri State University. Eight years ago I received my license from the State of New York in Gifted Education.
I now reside in St. Peters along with my husband, Mike. We hope that we are able to stay in the area for a long while. My family lives here, and some of Mike's have relocated here. We feel at home here at All Saints and in Missouri.
I truly believe that I am blessed. I have chosen a career that has brought me much joy and happiness. Not a day goes by that I am not happy to go to my job and be with the children. I will work daily to help your children become the best that they can be and life-long learners.
Mr. Pat McCoy - 5th Grade
I was born in Quincy, IL, but moved to the St. Louis area at the age of ten. I have four brothers and five sisters. My wife, Kate, is one of thirteen children and we have four children of our own. Kate and I have been married for thirty five years. We moved to St. Charles when we were married and have lived in the area since then, except for one year when we lived and worked at Father Flannigan’s Boys Home. We now live in St. Peters.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration at the University of Missouri – Columbia and worked in banking before I returned to school to pursue a career in education. I earned a Master’s degree in Education from Washington University and later a Master’s degree in Education Administration at the University of Missouri – St. Louis.
I began my career in education at St. Peters Elementary in St. Charles where I taught 6th grade for one year. Sister Carol Jean was my 6th grade partner that year. I then changed to teaching in the public school sector at Central Elementary in the Francis Howell School District. After seven years in the classroom I became an assistant principal and then principal at Fairmount Elementary. I later served as principal at Daniel Boone Elementary and then Warren Elementary. After 20 years in school administration I was ready to return to the classroom and have been blessed to work at All Saints since the 2007-08 school year.
I am thankful every day that I listened to the Voice of God and returned to teaching in the classroom at All Saints. I have found the school to be a kind and caring community that is dedicated to doing God’s work on earth. It is a privilege to work with the students and their families of All Saints and help them on their journey to grow in faith and knowledge.
Mr. Robert Schaberg - 6th Grade
I have a sixth grade homeroom, and I teach sixth, seventh and eighth grade Science. I am a Peer Mediation Moderator as well as a Safety Patrol Moderator. I also teach the Old Testament and Social Studies.
I have taught at All Saints School for over 30 years. I appreciate the welcoming spirit and good work of the teachers, students, principal and staff, priests, and parents/guardians at All Saints.
I graduated from Duchesne High School, and went to Rockhurst College for one year. I received an A.B. Degree from St. Louis University, and a Ph.D. in history from St. Louis University, where I wrote a doctoral dissertation on Joseph Priestley, (the discoverer of oxygen). I have also taken courses at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, and the St. Charles Community College.
I enjoy learning and I have always tried to keep learning. My view of teaching is that the students and I are fellow learners in the great enterprise of learning, and that we learn from each other. I also try to help students learn good study skills so they are able to learn well on their own. School is the place to learn how to learn.
I enjoy reading, and I like to read about history, science, and other subjects. I have also been a runner for over 27 years.
Mike Etter - 7th Grade
Mrs. Sue Shelley - 8th Grade
All Saints School has been my "home away from home" for many years. I taught P.E. for nine fun-filled years before becoming a seventh grade teacher in 2001. We are still having fun, but in a more structured setting! I am a Lindenwood University graduate. I attended as a “non-traditional” student and enjoyed my education very much.
My husband, Dan, and I have been married 31 years and have four wonderful children and two terrific sons-in-law. We also have three beautiful grandchildren. What a blessing!
Our family loves to go boating on the Mississippi, so if you see the “Clas-sea”, give us a wave! We also enjoy collegiate basketball and our allegiance is divided between KU and MU. Go Hawks and M-I-Z!
Our four children are All Saints graduates and we feel very privileged to have had them in such a loving and caring academic and spiritual environment. We are also parishioners and feel honored to call All Saints “family”.
Mrs. Christine Seeck - 8th Grade
Mr. Paul Unger - Art
I am the second oldest of four children and I grew up in South City St. Louis in Epiphany of Our Lord Parish. I have pulled up my city roots and moved out to Florissant where my wife, Laura, and I have a home. Laura is a Speech Pathologist in the Ferguson/Florissant School Districy and she works with special needs children. We are members of All Saints Parish and were married here in October of 2010. We immediately fell in love with the All Saints community and all of the people who have made it the special place it is.
Unfortunately, my art education in my younger years was very limited, but my parents always nurtured and encouraged me to use the talents given to me by God. I want every student to be able to express themselves creatively and positively. I am eager to share my love of art with the students and show how it can bring joy into their lives and the lives of others.
I consider myself very blessed and fortunate to be teaching all grade levels at All Saints. Working with the many age levels, personal interests and artistic styles is a welcomed challenge. In looking at various styles and works in art's history, we will explore the many beautiful and interesting forms art can take.
In my free time I love to draw and paint, play softball, enjoy my vast collection of old and new movies and music, read and spend as much time as I can with my wife.
Mrs. Arleen Ziegemeier - Cafeteria
Mrs. Anita Dutrow - Computers
Sixteen years ago, when I started teaching at All Saints, the Computer Learning Center consisted of sixteen Apple II computers with green monitors! I am proud to have been a part of the growth of technology at All Saints. With 28 computers in the lab and another 35 throughout the building, we have come a long way.
I grew up in Arlington Heights, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago (go Cubs!) and graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (go Illini!) with a B.S. in Elementary Education. I taught a year in Chicago and then married and relocated to St. Louis. I have a great love of science and math and spent a number of years teaching both subjects at the junior high level at Atonement Lutheran, Our Lady of Loretto, Incarnate Word and Sts. Joachim and Ann schools. When the opportunity to teach in the Computer Learning Center at All Saints was presented, I jumped at the chance to take on the challenge. I have taken additional college credit and computer courses every year including several summer classes at Stephens College. In 2005 I was certified as an Intel Master Teacher.
My husband, Steve, and I have been married for 25 years. He is a Computer Engineer and my personal “Geek Squad” when there are computer issues I just can’t figure out on my own. My daughter, Samantha, is studying to become a Physical Therapist at USC. While I hate having her so far away, southern California is a lovely place to visit and I try to visit often! My son, Stephen, is a junior at Southeast Missouri State, studying Construction Management.
I am an avid reader and my idea of a perfect vacation involves a book, a lawn chair and a beach. I enjoy gardening and each year more of my yard changes from grass to flower beds. I do lots of sewing and crafts and I love to shop for bargains on eBay! This summer I rode many miles on my bike on the Katy Trail.
I was blessed last year to be able to represent All Saints School for the third time as a part of the St. Joseph Mission Brigade trip to Belize. Working with the Mayan children in the remote villages of southern Belize was a life changing experience. This January I will be returning to Belize with the group from All Saints. I will be stepping in as the local contact person from school. I look forward to sharing pictures and stories with the children at All Saints. A little part of my heart stays with the beautiful Belizean people I meet each year.
Teaching in the Computer Learning Center at All Saints is always an adventure. Watching the students explore the world of technology is exciting and challenging. I always tell people that I have the best job in the school!
Mrs. Tracy Hecke - Computers
The path my life has taken since marrying Steve over 30 years ago is not one I would have predicted, but what an enjoyable journey it has been!
After graduating from Southeast Missouri State University with a combined B.A. Degree in Elementary Education and Speech Pathology, I interviewed at a little school in St. Peters that was led by a Sister Lillian called All Saints. I lived in Bridgeton then, and not wanting to make that ‘long ride’ across the river, I turned down the position and instead began my teaching career at St. Blaise. After three great years there and the birth of my first son, Danny, I said goodbye and moved to this side of the river. I was fortunate to be able to team-teach in the 3rd grade at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, and did so happily until my second son David was born.
I was blessed to be able to stay home at that point, and thoroughly enjoyed my ten years as a “stay-at-home” mom! By the time my third son, Robbie was ready to enter Kindergarten, we had moved again and I was elbows deep in volunteering at their school--coming full circle back to All Saints! Luckily for me, after helping in the Computer Lab, I was in the right place when a position came up and I jumped right in. I felt very blessed to be teaching at the school where my children attended, and believe that is a tribute to how much I value what All Saints provides, educationally and spiritually. The importance that is placed on technology at our school is beneficial to our parents, our staff, and especially to our students as they grow into our 21st century world.
My sons are mostly grown now, and if I find myself with some time on my hands, I love to read, garden, and dabble in digital photography.
Mrs. Debbie Goheen - CRE and Music
Sometimes life comes as a song unsung--waiting to be played, begging to be sung, gently inviting the touch of a kindly hand or the voice of a caring friend. The mystery of a song begs to be shared. I, Deborah, was born with a song in my heart and I am pleased to be called by God to sing God's praises at All Saints School.
I was born in a small town in Southeast Missouri. My parents, Boodles and Muriel, were the proud parents of three girls and two boys. They sacrificed so much to send us to St. Denis Catholic School in Benton, MO. After high school I attended St. Louis University and earned a BA in Elementary Education. In 1996 I received a Masters of Ministry from Seattle University. I currently hold a Director of Religious Education certification in the Archdiocese of St. Louis.
I am so fortunate to have a wonderful husband, Gordon. We reside in a home in Marthasville, MO with our affectionate dog, Sadie. We always look forward to spending time with Tami and Josh, our children, who live away from home.
This year begins my 28th year in Catholic education. During my years of teaching I have taught grades 2 through 8 in Illinois and Missouri. I previously was the Director of Religious Education at St. Catherine Laboure and All Saints. I returned to All Saints in 2002 and became the proud teacher of the 5th grade. In January of 2008 I left the classroom to assume the duties of the Coordinator of Religious Education and became a member of the Parish Leadership Team at All Saints. It was an easy transition for me because of my commitment to this school, my admiration and respect for the teachers and staff, and the love in my heart for the children and families of this parish.
This year our school theme is: You are the Voice of God... God Is Here. How appropriate for me because I am aware that once again I am being called to let God's song (voice) be sung through me as I minister in this wonderful place where God and people come together to pray and worship. I am so fortunate and so blessed by God.
Mrs. Carrie Duley - Kindergarten
Mrs. Karen Mesler - Library
I am happily married to my husband, Todd Sr. We have four sons, Andrew, Stephen, Todd Jr. (TJ) and Joshua. The oldest three graduated from All Saints and Joshua is now in 7th grade.
We live in St. Peters and have been active members of All Saints Parish for many years. I have volunteered in many different areas of our parish. I put together Easter Baskets for the less fortunate parishes in the City of St. Louis (where I was born and raised) along with non-profit organizations in the St. Charles and Warren counties. Last year 839 baskets were filled and delivered with the generous help of my friends.
I feel blessed to be a part of the All Saints family.
Mr. Tom Forgue - P.E.
Jen Albrecht - Preschool
At an early age I knew that teaching would be my calling in life. I have taught various age groups with all types of abilities. Some of which include; preschool, primary grades, intermediate grades and adults. I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every teaching experience. My life has been forever changed and enriched because of them.
I earned a BA in Education and have a masters in counseling in progress at Lindenwood. This is my first year at All Saints and I love the friendly staff and sense of community that it provides. This is the first year for All Saints Preschool and I am currently serving in two positions as a director and teacher. I feel truly blessed to be a part of All Saints School.
Outside of All Saints School I have a beautiful family –my husband Doug and two children, Jacob and Claire. We belong to Assumption Parish in O'Fallon and it is huge part of our lives. My children attend school at Assumption in 2nd and 5th grades. As a family we spend a great deal of time together camping, singing, hiking and traveling.
Thank you for sending your child to All Saints and entrusting them in our care. It is truly a wonderful place to grow and learn with Jesus.
Mrs. Ann Lapinski - Resources
All Saints School has provided a special ‘niche’ for me, working with students who need a little extra one-on-one instruction. My job is rewarding every day. I witness the progress of my students as they master a spelling list or read a challenging story. I feel I help inspire them to succeed. I learn from my students, every day: Not to give up, just work harder! I also enjoy coaching All Saints’ Speech Team and working with gifted students in a weekly enrichment program.
I received my college degree from Southern Illinois University and graduate work at UMSL. I share my life with my husband John and two children, Jonathan, 18, and Laura, 15. We love to travel and can be ready for a “road trip” on short notice.
We also share a passion for water and life in the country. Most summer days you will find us nestled in the family lake house at Lake Egypt, deep in the Shawnee National Forest. I also love reading, music, and cooking.
