6th/7th Grade Teacher
My name is Bridget Oberhausen and I will teach 6th grade Religion, 6th & 7th grade English Language Arts, and Science classes at our new middle school.
This will be my first year at SMK and I look forward to working witheach one of you throughout our school year! Here’s a little bit of information about me.
My husband, Ryan, and I have been married for eight years. We are both Tell City, Indiana natives. Our son, Sam, was born in the summer of 2011 and I took a sabbatical from the classroom to spend time with him during his earliest years. We moved to Georgetown and became SMK parishioners last summer. He attended the SMK PreK program last year and will start Kindergarten in July. We love to travel, swim, ride bikes, read, listen to music, and go to the beach as a family.
I attended St. Paul Catholic Elementary School and Tell City Junior – Senior High School. I graduated from Hanover College with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education in 2002. I completed my Masters of Science degree in Elementary Education as well as my K12 Instructional Technology certification at Indiana University Southeast. I have ten years teaching experience in fourth and fifth grades in Greater Clark County and Tell City-Troy Township School Corporations.
My commitment as a teacher is to foster an encouraging, engaging learning environment for all students where they feel confident to take risks, to develop their creativity, and to explore their intellectual curiosities. Also, in turn, it is equally important to emphasize to students to share their knowledge, skills, and talents with others they meet along the way. I strive to create intriguing lessons that meet individualized student learning needs which fulfill the Indiana academic standards.
It is an honor to have the opportunity to work within our church and school community to focus on developing our young students to become good stewards of God’s gifts and teaching them the intellectual leadership skills necessary for success in life.
