Andrea Williams | 5th Grade

Hello! My name is Andrea Williams and this is my 6th year teaching at Sacred Heart School. I taught 3 years in 2nd grade, 2 years as a self-contained 5th grade teacher and this year I will teach 5-7 Literacy and 5-7 Math.I am excited for the change and challenge.

     I grew up in Reedsburg. My father was the band director for 18 years and coached girls softball for 15 years. During those years I attended Sacred Heart Church and even went to school here at SHS for 1st grade. In my early 20’s I followed my family up to the Fox Valley area and lived in Oshkosh. That is where I met and married my husband Andy (22 years) and had 3 handsome, active boys.  I homeschooled my children when we lived in Oshkosh. Circumstances brought us back to Reedsburg in August of 2013.We homeschooled for another 2 school years and then I took a job at the Parish office in Faith Formation and I put all three boys at Sacred Heart School and then the high school. Our oldest, Drew, is currently in Stevens Point working at Kwik Trip and coaching the Men’s Volleyball Team and helping the Women’s team at the University when able. Our middle son, Adam, is starting his first year at UW-Oshkosh for Education and is also coaching JV2 Volleyball at Valley Christian in Oshkosh and will be coaching club volleyball in the winter as well. Our youngest, Anthony, is still here at SHS for one more year. He is in 8th grade.
     We are certainly blessed with our own immediate family but also the family that is SHS. I have been working with children in regards to education or their faith since I was 14 and here at SHS running all the Christmas programs and our Sunday School program back in the day.  That is 33 years working with students and I wouldn’t have it any other way! I recently continued my back to school journey and received my Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Education and students are my passion and I look forward to continuing here at SHS.
