Kaitlyn Gathje – Religion

With her passion for serving, new religion teacher, Ms. Kaitlyn Gathje, is teaching four periods of the junior Discipleship In Society class.

Gathje is from St. Charles Minnesota, a small town right outside of Rochester. Outside of school, she is very involved in sports. She is in two adult volleyball leagues and a kickball league. She is a part of the Harry J. Flynn catechetical institute and enjoys spending time outdoors camping and spend time with family and friends. Before BSM, Gathje worked for AmeriCorps. “I worked with kids who were going through the criminal justice system, trying to rehabilitate them instead of just pushing them out of their communities and out of their schools,” Gathje said.

Being new can be intimidating, but Gathje feels that the BSM community has been very welcoming. “It has been a great joy to be welcomed by such a solid community. I felt loved and very supported which is such an awesome gift,” Gathje said.

Her favorite thing about BSM so far is meeting her students. “Just the range of personalities and the energy that comes into the classroom each period, it has just been an awesome gift to meet people and get to know them,” Gathje said.

The games Mr. Hansen plays during wellness have caught the eye of Gathje. “My BSM dream is to be asked by a student to join in on one of the awesome activities Mr. Hansen’s wellness hours participate in,” Gathje said.
