MEET YOUR CATECHISTS 

KINDERGARTEN:               TERRI SCHILLER

Family Background: Jim and I have been married for 46 years. We have 4 children, Angela, Andy married to Sara, Katie married to Mike, and Kristin. We are also blessed to have 5 grandchildren, Will, Elizabeth, Gwen, Tristin and Alexander.

Reasons for being a "Valuable Volunteer": Last year I retired after working over 26 years for different parishes in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. I decided I wanted to spend more time with my grandchildren and one way I could do that was to be a catechist in Christian Formation. This year I am team-teaching with my daughter Katie Becherer and we are blessed to spend Sunday mornings with 7 delightful kindergarteners.

Favorite Hobbies/interests: Gardening, reading and traveling.
