Kindergarten is a wonderful place to learn. It is a time when children are naturally curious and excited about what they are learning. It is Mrs. Bienz's goal to make lessons that are hands on and actively engaging.
St. Patrick School and Parish has been a second family to her throughout her life. She attended school here many years ago. Folk Group was an important part of her teen and young adult years. Sharing her faith with others has always been important to Mrs. Bienz. Before pursuing teaching, she was involved in many different areas of Church ministry, youth ministry, music ministry, church camps, etc. In 1999, she became a teacher assistant.
Mrs. Bienz has been teaching kindergarten at St. Patrick School since 2005. She graduated St. Joseph's College with a BA in Child Studies. She has NYS certifications in Childhood Education birth through sixth grade and in Students with Disabilities birth through sixth grade. She received her Masters in Science in Literacy from LIU at CW Post. She continues to attend workshops, and learn new ways to help her students.
