 Lori Gutierrez Lori Gutierrez
Director of Early Childhood Development
Hello, my name is Lori Gutierrez, but I’m better known around here as Mrs. G. or Miss Lori.  I have been working in the Early Childhood field for over 30 years.  I worked at my first daycare center while in High school, earning credits for graduation.  This is my 4th year at SHS.  I spent my first 3 years as the School Nutrition Coordinator/Head Cook.  As much as I loved that job, I missed being in the classroom.

When Sacred Heart decided to add a daycare center, I was blessed with the opportunity to develop this new program.  I am extremely excited to be the Director of Early Childhood Development here at SHS. I look forward to serving our families for years to come. If you have any questions about the daycare, preschool or our new school age summer program, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

Hello, my name is Terri Haehnel.  This is my twenty-first year as an educator at Sacred Heart and I am so excited to be part of such a wonderful school!  I live in LaValle with my husband, John.  I have three daughters, three sons-in-law and six wonderful grandchildren. I received my certification to teach Early Childhood at MATC-Reedsburg in 2000. Preschool is definitely my passion. I am blessed to be able to honestly say, ” I LOVE MY JOB!”  Please don’t hesitate to stop by the school and visit us!  I would love to show you around our room.

I graduated from St. Norbert College in 2010 with a degree in Early Childhood Education.  I also competed in Cross Country and Track & Field for all four years.  My curriculum is based entirely on active engagement.  I incorporate movement and play to enhance student learning.  I believe that the Bible is the ultimate guide to life and I use it as my main “textbook” in the classroom.  I find God’s presence most noticeable when I am out on a run and when I see the smiles of the students at Sacred Heart.  “Play is the work of children.” –Mr. Rogers  “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”– Philippians 4:13

1st Grade
I have been teaching at Sacred Heart School since 1994.  I am a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse with a major in Elementary Education and a minor in Early Childhood Education. Since graduating, I have also received credits from Viterbo, Edgewood, St. Thomas, and the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. I love being a First Grade teacher and teaching children how to read. Another passion I love to share with my students is my love of music and singing. I am additionally blessed to be able to guide my students in their love of Jesus and their Catholic faith.  I also direct  the After School Care program at Sacred Heart. This program allows children a safe, familiar place to spend the after school hours until their parents are done with work.  I live in Reedsburg with my husband, Ron, and our two dogs. I am an avid Packer and Badger fan. I also enjoy reading, the theater and spending time with my large, extended family.

Hello.  While I am the new fourth grade teacher at Sacred Heart, I have been here since 2004 as principal.  I am thrilled to be back in the classroom with the fourth grade students.  Prior to coming to Reedsburg, I taught in Edgar and Colby Wisconsin.  I also taught in Minnesota, Montana, Colorado and Illinois.  Before becoming a teacher, I served in the U.S. Navy, worked as a ranch hand, fought forest fires, and was a baker.  I look forward to continuing at Sacred Heart and having your child as my student.

6th Grade
I am the new 6th Grade and Social Studies teacher here at Sacred Heart. I graduated in 2012 from UW Green Bay, with a Degree in History and Education. I am a 2016 Grad from Concordia-Portland with a Master’s Degree in Cross Categorical Special Education. I love teaching, and wouldn’t dream of having another job, unless I could be a world famous archeologist. I am married to an amazing man named Patrick, and enjoy my free time at my home surrounded by trees in Westfield, WI.

7th Grade
I am the oldest of six kids, raised on a farm down in Rochester, Wisconsin (see if you can find it on a map!).  I spent my formative years at St. Thomas Aquinas of Waterford, Wisconsin and have so many fond memories of growing up in a Catholic School.  I graduated from Waterford Union High school at the Millenium and then the University of Wisconsi-Oshkosh in 2005.  Since graduating, I have worked with Kohl’s Department Stores and worked my way into teaching a bit later in my professional career.  In my third position as a full-time teacher, I can say I finally feel at home. I love the environment that Sacred Heart is able to provide in nourishing and adapting our students toward their greatest potentials (it reminds me a lot of my childhood experiences).  Additionally, I am extremely vested in the mission of Sacred Heart as I will see my own two sons meander their way through their formative years at S.H.S. as well.

8th Grade
Sacred Heart School has been my home since 2012, where I am the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Social Studies teacher.  I graduated in 2009 from Molloy College in Rockville Centre, New York, with a degree in History and Secondary Education.  I am a native of New York, and therefore an avid sports fan, especially for the New York Yankees and New York Jets.  I am married to my beautiful wife Alicia.  We have one very busy son Liam, who loves to make us smile and laugh.  We are expecting our second child in July 2015.  Some hobbies I enjoy include sports, current events, history, hunting, fishing, and theater.
