My name is April Kirby and this is my 14th year teaching at Faithful Shepherd! This year I am so excited to be in a new role as the K-8 Phy. Ed specialist! Health, wellness, and fitness have always been passions of mine, and I am excited to be able to bring my knowledge and experience to the students of Faithful Shepherd. I previously taught 4th grade and middle school at FSCS.
I earned my degree in Elementary Education from St. Mary’s University in Winona. My certifications are in K-6 Elementary Education, 5-8 Communication Arts, and 5-8 Math. In addition to teaching, I also have backgrounds in coaching and fitness.
My husband, J.J., and I have four children, three of which are at Faithful Shepherd! We have a 6th grader, 4th grader, and 1st grader, and the youngest will be here next year. Our kids keep us very busy and we love every minute of it!
I am fortunate to be able to experience Faithful Shepherd as a teacher and a parent. As a teacher, I am blessed to work with highly skilled, caring, and faith-filled educators. As a parent, my children are blessed to be taught by the best!
I’m looking forward to another great year at Faithful Shepherd!
