Catechist Bio's

Welcome to our preschool/kindergarten classroom!  My name is Bridget Sessions!  I have been a preschool catechist for 4 years as well as taught kindergarten and 5th grade for several years.  I recently got married this summer!  I am looking forward to working with you and your child this year and growing deeper in our faith.

My name is Nikki Dumoulin and I have been teaching for 7 years between 1st and 3rd grade.  I enjoy working with kids by helping them learn more about their faith.  I currently work at Custom Aluminum Products as an engineering estimator.  In my free time, I enjoy working on my family pig farm.

Hi my name is Jenny and I have been teaching RE for 11 years, with this upcoming year being my 12th year in the program. I have been very fortunate to teach alongside my cousin Becky throughout that time where we started off teaching 4th grade and then moved to 5th grade for a number of those years. Just last year we were asked to switch things up a bit and taught 2nd grade. This year we will both be returning to teach 2nd grade again and we are very excited for the opportunity to do so. Teaching RE has been one of the most fulfilling experiences that I could have ever asked for. It always amazes me how much I learn from the kids each and every year. I also love being able to help the kids grow stronger in their faith and gain a better relationship with God. I look forward to teaching the kids all about the sacraments that they will be receiving this year and to be part of all the joy and excitement that they will share when receiving them too.

Hi! My name is Becky Dumoulin and this year is my 11th year teaching religious education! I have taught 4th and 5th grade and will be teaching 2nd grade again this year with my cousin Jenny. I recently graduated NIU in December with my Bachelors degree, and am currently working at Central Middle School as a Special Education teacher. I am super excited about this year and I am ready to help the 2nd graders prepare for their faith journey.

Hi I'm Arianna!

 

I've been a lifelong parishioner at SCB and in the past few years have become more involved in the parish through greeting, tech help, and youth ministry. In 2018 I graduated from Judson University with a degree in Art/Design and Photography. Since then I have worked in those fields as well as at Disney World, Ella Johnson Library, and Prairie View in Hampshire. In everything I do, I try to spread the love and joy of God, and I'm very excited to share it through teaching! 

 

Arianna Halt
DRE Assistant & 4th Grade

Anne was raised in small-town Illinois and learned the Catholic Faith through the example of her faithful parents and while in Catholic school through 8th grade. She graduated from the Illinois Institute of Technology in 2016 with a Bachelor's in Civil Engineering and a Master's in Environmental Engineering and has been working at an engineering consulting firm for the past 3 years. She taught or tutored a wide age range of students since high school, but her true love is with the Catholic Faith, the sacraments, the saints, and apologetics. In her "free time", she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, being outside, and any sport that gets her moving, especially running.

6th & 7th Grade

My name is Alex Dumoulin and I began teaching Religious Education back in 2009 with my sister, Michelle.  We have taught Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 6th Grade over the past several years.  I can honestly say that the kids that we have had the privilege of interacting with have been a true blessing and have inspired me to become a better individual each and every day.  I thoroughly enjoy being a part of this ministry and so thankful to have the opportunity to meet wonderful people along the way!
