First Grade - Mrs. Schulte
     Welcome to 1st grade!  My name is Jan Schulte and I have been teaching first grade for 13 years at Our Lady of Grace Catholic School.  I was born and raised here in San Diego and was personally fortunate to have received a Catholic education from St. Rita's, to Blessed Sacrament, to Our Lady of Peace High School.  My husband attended Saint Augustine High School and now 37 years later we have been blessed with three wonderful children and one absolutely adorable granddaughter (and a grandson on the way)!!
     My husband's career took us away from San Diego for fourteen years, first to Greensboro, North Carolina, then to Tampa, Florida.  I worked as a 2nd/3rd grade aide at St. Pius Catholic School in Greensboro for six years and loved it so much that I decided to get my teaching credential when we moved to Florida.  I taught 2nd grade at Nativity Catholic School in Tampa for seven years and then we were thrilled to have the opportunity to move back home to San Diego.  The rest is history!
     Teaching young children to read, solve math problems, and helping them to navigate through all of the first grade skills and adventures is extremely rewarding for me.  However, having the opportunity to strengthen a child's faith in God on a daily basis is truly a gift I have been given.
