Week of Mar 13

It was great visiting with all the parents and students at spring conferences. Our ALEKS goal is 80% by Mar 10, end of 3rd quarter.

ALEKS club will be held every Wed 3:30-4:05 in computer lab 2. Students can come to get help in ALEKS or just log some time at school. I ask that all students learn 10 topics each week to reinforce class lessons. If a student has a knowledge check during the week, he/she is to complete the knowledge check and learn only 5 topics that week.

Mrs. Reintjes - Biography

I was born in Garden Plain, KS and moved to my grandparents' farm during middle school. There I attended school at St. Peters, Schulte and Goddard High School. Upon graduation, I earned a BSc in Mechanical Engineering at Kansas State University. I met my husband, Joe, while at K-State and we married after college. We returned to Wichita where I worked as a mechanical design engineer at Symbios (now NetApp) for seven years. Once our first son was born, I resigned to become a full-time mother.

A few years after my second son was born, I began substitute teaching Math and Science at St. Thomas Aquinas and Kapaun Mt. Carmel. During that time, I had the opportunity to teach in several long-term substitute assignments. These experiences convinced me that I was created to be a teacher. I love mathematics, enjoy teaching the subject and am thrilled when a student grasps a new math concept.

In my spare time our family enjoys staying active in the great outdoors. We hike, camp, boat, ski and snorkel. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, sewing and scrapbooking with friends in my spare time. My oldest son will be an 8th grader this year at St. Thomas and my youngest will be a 3rd grader here as well. St. Thomas Aquinas is also our home parish. You may recognize my name since I organize the Children's Liturgy of the Word program.

In case you have trouble pronouncing my name, the "ein" is German and pronounced with a long i, like in Einstein. Also, if you're curious the "tj" combination is Dutch.
