Catechist Bio's

Bridget Dumoulin - Preschool - Sunday 

My name is Bridget Dumoulin and I am the preschool catechist for Family Faith Formation.  I have taught preschool, kindergarten and fifth grade.  This is my 3rd year teaching preschool.  I have been a Speech Language Pathologist for the Huntley School District for 3 years and love working with children.  I am so excited to work with the preschoolers again and can't wait to learn with them and through them about our faith.  

 

Andrew Sessions - Preschool - Sunday

My name is Andrew Sessions and I am an assistant for the preschool Family Faith Formation.  This will be my second year as an assistant for the preschool program.  I became Catholic 1 1/2 years ago and moved to Illinois from Springfield, Missouri.  I currently work as a supervisor at FedEx.  Looking forward to teaching our preschool friends more about their faith.

Katie McMillan - 2nd Grade Wednesday Night 

Learning religion is so BORING!!!   But, it doesn't have to be.

In the past 12 years of teaching RE at St. Charles Borromeo, I have taught 3, 4, and 5 grade.

Every year, I try to teach a faith based lesson on what my students like. I have done lessons on cartooning, plays, show and tell, origami, and yes even Minecraft. But, I have found, the best teacher in all of my classes is the student whose parents or grandparents  have spent time with them reading Bible stories, watching Veggie tales with them, or talking to them about faith.
