Meet the Falcons, Part 1

At the start of the 2020-2021 academic year, we welcomed many new Falcons to our family! From new students to new front office staff members, to new teachers, our nest expanded and gained many noteworthy rockstars!

Over the summer months, we wanted to take a moment to highlight both our long-time team members and our newest teachers, so that we could all get to know one another a little better.

Each week we will feature a handful of our team members, sharing a short Q & A on each of our Frassati leaders.

For part one of this round-up, let’s get to know fourth-grade teacher Benedetto, middle school religion teacher Urban, third-grade teacher Blomgren, and building substitute and interventionist Hoffman. Let’s go rapid fire on this Q & A!

Favorite Book:

Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owens

Favorite School Subject & Why:

I LOVE math! Math was very easy for me growing up and I feel like I just couldn’t get enough and wanted a harder challenge as I was going through school. When I graduated high school, I received my AA in Mathematics.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

I am most looking forward to my sister-in-law getting married in Florida, spending weekends at our family cabin in Wisconsin, and golfing!

Favorite Book:

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe

Favorite School Subject & Why:

Math and religion – it is always fun and exciting to solve math problems. It is like solving a little mystery that has a correct answer. Religion is awesome because we get to learn more about Jesus, his life, and what he wants from us.

What are you most looking forward to this summer?

Over the summer I am excited to check as many things off of our Summer Fun List as possible. I love to fish, swim and be with my family!
