Hello, my name is Marita Thiele.  St. Alphonsus as been a home to me for 9 years in various capacities.  For the last 2 years I have been the Director of Teaching and Learning.  
A typical day includes, reading with students, popping into classrooms, and meeting with students/ teachers individually.  There is so much variety each day in my schedule that it always stays interesting.
I grew up in the small town of Platteville.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in communications and psychology at UW-Milwaukee.  After moving to Michigan, I completed my Master’s degree in special education at University of Detroit- Mercy.  I started at St. Alphonsus in the 3K room which required me to complete my early childhood certificate at Alverno College.  I believe in continual learning to be at my best for our students everyday.
I spend my free time being active.  I also enjoy family time together on our boat, trying new restaurants, and listening as our children share all their life experiences.
St. Alphonsus holds a special place in my heart as two of our four children grew to be strong young men under the care of these superb teachers.
