Learning Specialist Services

Providing Extra Tools for Individual Support

Providing individual support of student success is something Faithful Shepherd recognizes as a need for students who need additional help in academics and personal growth. We provide that support in specific subject areas by offering extra time and skills to achieve their success. Our learning specialist, Mrs. Price (mprice@fscsmn.org, Mrs. Price’s Website), works with students to provide the extra tools needed to shine in the classroom. Additionally, our middle school teachers also provide academic support to middle school students who are struggling.  Our entire faculty will work together as a team to improve their learning capabilities.

Meet Our Learning Specialist

Greetings! Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Heidi Price and I am the Learning Specialist here at Faithful Shepherd Catholic School. I am very excited to join this faith based community and work with the children here, whom I am most passionate for. Every child is a wonderful gift from God. Children find and gain their greatest strengths when they are provided a positive, encouraging, supportive and faith based environment. I truly believe I have the ability to help your child find those talents and use them to help them succeed in life.

I received my B.A. in Elementary Education from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN and taught regular education at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School in Hastings, MN, as well as Tumbleweed Elementary in Palmdale, CA. I obtained my M.A. from the University of St. Thomas in Special Education and taught students in District 196 for 24 years.

Guidance and Counseling

At every age, Faithful Shepherd knows that educating and caring for your child goes beyond academics. FSCS has partnered with Phoenix School Counseling to provide counseling services to our students.

Our counselor, Mrs. Moseley, offers individual and small group support for students who may be struggling in a variety of areas including anxiety, depression, life changes, grief, self-esteem, friendship, impulse control, anger management, study skills, and social skills needs.  She supports classroom teaching through regular character education in K-8 classrooms to provide relatable and practical lessons on topics such as responsibility, healthy choices, perseverance, and citizenship. Through the gifts of faith, our faculty provides the support students deserve as they navigate the rigorous challenges of youth and adolescence.
