Teacher: Cindy Fallert
My name is Cindy Fallert. I have been teaching at St. Agnes School since 1981. I feel very blessed to be teaching so long at such an awesome school. I have taught third grade, first grade, fourth grade, and I am presently teaching 7th grade homeroom. I also am the science coordinator and science teacher for grades 5, 6, 7, and 8.
I grew up in Crystal City, Missouri, and graduated from Southeast Missouri State University with a bachelor of science degree in elementary education in 1981. I interviewed for a teaching position that was open at St. Agnes, and I have been there ever since! It was a good decision, because I have a strong attachment to St. Agnes.
My husband Jim and I have been married for 34 years, and he is a veterinarian at the Ste. Genevieve Veterinary Clinic. Our three children are St. Agnes graduates, pursued higher education, and have very successful careers. Our daughter, Lauren, teaches physics at a Catholic high school in St. Louis. She and her husband Joe have four wonderful children: Abby, Nate, Ben, and Sam. Lauren's husband, Joe, is in the Army National Guard. Our son, Luke, is a full time paramedic. He also is a graduate of the St. Louis Firefighting Academy. Luke's wife, Halleh, teaches math at Farmington High School. Our youngest son, Zack, recently graduated from Mizzou with a degree in civil engineering and a masters in geotechnical engineering. Zack and his fiancee', Jennifer Bauman have their wedding date set for October, 2015. Jenny recently graduated from Mizzou's school of nursing and will begin a nursing job at Barnes Hospital in September. Our family is certainly growing quickly!
My greatest love besides teaching, of course, is my family. Since my children and grandchildren live in the Bloomsdale/Ste. Genevieve area, I have the privilege of spending time with them, and getting to see my grandchildren grow up! It is awesome to now have my grandchildren attending St. Agnes School just as my husband and my children did in the past.
We have a wonderful school! Our students are the best, and we have parents who are extremely supportive. Obviously, I have a great love for St. Agnes School and could not see myself anywhere else. To be able to pray and worship freely is the most beneficial privilege a Catholic school can offer. This is why I value my position as an educator and mission moderator-bringing Jesus into the classroom every day with my students.
