I love teaching 4K because each day brings new opportunities for creativity and fun.

    I graduated from Purdue University in Elementary Education with a minor in Special Education and I have been in the teaching profession for 30+ years. I've been fortunate enough to have spent 22 of those years here at Holy Apostles teaching first grade. I love watching my students grow into confident, caring students and hope I'm helping foster their love of lifelong learning. I especially enjoy teaching the first graders about Jesus and the importance of following his footsteps daily.

    Mrs. Ashley Banton

    I have a BS in Education and a minor in Religious Studies from the University of Wisconsin -Madison. I have been teaching for 12 years and have taught kindergarten, first and second grade.

    Mr. Tyler Cobb

    My name is Mr. Tyler Cobb, and I will be the new second grade teacher at Holy Apostles. I am excited to join a welcoming community of students and families who focus on Christ and serve others. I am also humbled to be part of an exemplary group of teachers and staff members. I joined the Holy Apostles community as a parishioner nearly eight years ago. In that time, you may have seen me in the adult choir, as a cantor, in the Song of Mark production as Peter, or in Encounter. I have also visited La Sagrada Familia in the Dominican Republic where I served as a medical translator for the Haitian ministry. I appreciate the warm welcome and look forward to becoming a part of Holy Apostles Catholic School. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn and serve with all of you, all while growing closer to our best teacher: Jesus Christ.

    Mrs. Connie Fellows

    Mr. Mike Kleinhans

I feel very blessed to work at Holy Apostles because everyday the students bring a smile to my face, make me laugh, allow me to share my joy of Spanish with them, and positively impact my life.

    Mrs. Alyssa Wilda
    Music Teacher


    I am thrilled to be the music teacher at Holy Apostles School! You might also recognize me as one of Holy Apostles' Children's Choir directors, a guest conductor for the adult choir, the vocal music director and an actress in Holy Apostles' production of The Song of Mark, or as a cantor for weekend Masses. I received my Bachelor of Music Degree from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with certifications in both choral and general music. Music teaches us about history, culture, relationships, science, language, expression, and faith. Watching the adult music ministry growing up at Holy Apostles, I always felt more connected at mass when music was involved and found myself thinking about the text long after the singing and instruments had stopped. I love sharing similar experiences of music, faith, inspiration, and exploration with our students, staff, and families.

    Mrs. Lois Radermacher
    Art Teacher


    I began teaching at HA in 2001. I love teaching art class because it is a place for the children to relax, to learn about the lives of some artists, and to create original works of their own. Art class is a place for students to be independent thinkers, problem solvers and decision makers. I earned a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from UWWhitewater, and a Masters of Art Education from Concordia University.
