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!

My name is Peggy Shannon, I will be your child’s Catechist this year 21-22 in Family Faith formation. I would like to introduce myself and tell you a little about myself. I was raised in Wheaton Illinois, the 10th child of 13. I am married, and have 4 adult children, 12, grandchildren, and just retired from a 31 year nursing career.   I have been a member of SCB parish since 1999 when we moved to Hampshire. I have been a religious ed. teacher for about 30 years on and off, ranging from primary grades, confirmation, and RCIA. I love sharing our rich Catholic Faith with the future generations. I am proud and honored to be a part of your family’s faith journey.

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!
