Faculty and Staff


Ms April Hartung

My name is April Hartung and I am so happy to be a part of the St. Jude community! I have been a west-sider all my life and St. Jude is very near and dear to my heart. In 2011 I received my Catholic sacraments through St. Jude’s RCIA program, and it was a life-changing experience! I attended Mount St. Joseph University and received my bachelor’s degree in Inclusive Early Childhood Education, as well as my Master’s in Reading Science with my reading endorsement and dyslexia certificate included. I have taught kindergarten for the past 3 years. I am a lover of learning, and I hope to instill my love of learning and reading into my students. In my spare time I enjoy going to the park, reading, and spending time with friends and family. I also have a 3-year-old son who keeps me very busy! We spend a lot of time at the zoo, library, museum, and anywhere that has trains! I love being a teacher and I’m proud to call St. Jude my home. Go Bulldogs!
