Welcome to PPK
My name is Missy Himrich & I am beginning my 14th year of teaching PPK at St. Anthony School. My previous experience is teaching Kindergarten & Pre-K. I attended 16 years of Catholic education at St. Anthony's, Dowling Catholic, and Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa. When I decided to become an elementary education teacher there was no doubt that teaching in a Catholic school was where I felt at home.
My husband Jeff & I belong to St. Anthony parish and as with tradition our daughter & son both graduated from SAS. Our daughter is a freshman at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota and our son is a sophomore at Dowling Catholic. We love the rich Catholic tradition, family atmosphere, and fine education that our church & school provide.
My interests surround my children - We love hanging out together exploring different restaurants, being out doors, or cheering them on in whatever they are doing. When we are not cheering for our kids we are #1 fans of The Fighting Irish!
Patricia Beck is the associate in our classroom. This is her 6th year in the PPK classroom. Patricia and her husband, Jamie are parishoners at St. Anthony Catholic Parish and have 4 boys, 3 who attend St. Anthony School. Patricia's interests include shopping, running, eating, and spending time with her family:) Patricia is also a graduate of St. Anthony's & Dowling.
