Mrs Erin Riestenberg

I am blessed to be a teacher and parent at St. Jude School! I began teaching part-time at St. Jude during the 2017-2018 school year, teaching 7th and 8th-grade mathematics. In the 2018-2019 school year, I taught full-time at St. Jude as a junior high language arts and mathematics teacher. This year I am excited for my 4th year in 2nd grade! My previous teaching experience has been in fifth grade, kindergarten, and reading intervention. I graduated from Ohio University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Education. I also obtained a Masters of Education degree in 2013 from Xavier University. Besides teaching at St. Jude, I am also an active parishioner. My husband, Joe, and our three children, Kaelyn, Grant, and Blake, have been parishioners since 2008.  Besides teaching, I love spending time with my family, running, reading, camping, and vacationing in Hilton Head Island, SC.
