The St. Paul Link, September 11, 2014

st-paulI’d like to take a moment of your time to introduce myself. My name is Lisa Hargarten and you can find me on the upper level of Saint Paul School where I teach Middle School Health and Religion to my 6th grade Homeroom class. I come to Saint Paul School with a sense of famili- arity as I have previously taught in the Gary Diocese for nearly fifteen years. My early years of teaching began at Wheeler and Boone Grove High Schools where I served as a Pre-Vocational Education Coordinator. Shortly thereafter, I was very fortunate to have been able to take an eleven year hiatus to raise my young children. I cherish those full-time years spent together with them at home. I, then, returned to teaching and found my niche with the Diocese teaching Physical Educa- tion to grades K through 8th. I taught at both Nativity of Our Savior School in Portage and at St. Patrick School in Chesterton. Thus, coming to Saint Paul is a very similar fit. I, once again, am blessed to be with another fine group of professionals who are devoted to their calling of teaching in a Catholic school.
