My name is Miss Mikaela Merten, and I am the kindergarten teacher at Sacred Heart. I am delighted to become a part of the Sacred Heart family, and look forward to learning from this community!
I grew up seven miles north of Rose Creek and attended Southland Schools from elementary through high school. I grew up Catholic and still practice my faith everyday. Growing up I was able to attend religion classes through Sacred Heart, I made my Reconciliation, 1st Communion, and Confirmation through the Sacred Heart Parishes. My family belongs to St. Augustine Parish in Austin, but we did occasionally attend mass in Rose Creek, Johnsburg, and Adams. I am thrilled to be back in the community and serving in a occupation I love!
I have my elementary education degree through Winona State-Rochester, where I attended two years of schooling to receive my bachelors. My student teaching was spent at Pinewood elementary in Rochester, a relatively small school for the big city of Rochester, with two sections per grade.
Please feel free to contact me anytime with questions, concerns, comments, or any fun or interesting stories of what the kindergartners are up to at home!
