Hi, my name is Rachel Tuel. My husband Pat and our 2 boys, Matthew (age 8, 2nd grade) and Lucas (age 5, pre-K) have been members at Our Lady of Victory since returning to the area from California 4 years ago. Both of our boys have attended the Learning Ladder Preschool at OLV and have continued at OLV School upon entering kindergarten.
I am currently on the Board of Ed and wish to re-run for a 2nd term. I am part of the Spring Gala (Steak & Wine) committee and help with the OLV School Public Relations as needed. I am also involved in the Home and School organization. With the church, I am the Children’s Liturgy of the Word leader for the young kids on Sunday mornings. I enjoy being involved with the youth of the school, church and community.
As for the school, some of the goals I have are to continue to increase the enrollment at the school as we have been doing the past few years. In addition, I would like to find ways to sustain the enrollment at the upper grade levels. I would also like to help work on bringing more extracurricular classes to the school, such as language classes or a MN history class, for those that would like them. We are very impressed with the level of education, both in their academics and religion, and could not imagine sending our kids to school anywhere else!
Hello, my name is Katie Hajicek…..My appreciation for OLV began the moment I toured the school in 2010. I immediately knew that this was a special place and that both of my children, James and Julia, would be attending.
My husband, Tyson, and I along with our children have lived in Fergus Falls for nearly 6 years. James is currently in the fifth grade, and Julia in third. I have enjoyed volunteering at OLV throughout years and have a great respect and appreciation for the wonderful teaching staff. OLV has been one of our greatest blessings and I would love the opportunity to be a part of its Board of Education. OLV has not only given our children a top notch education, but also contributed to their Spiritual development.
After spending nearly ten years as a Nutrition Educator and working in various school systems, I decided to pursue a full time career in education and received my Master’s degree in FACS education in 2010. I currently teach Family & Consumer Science to students in grades 6-12.
My goal is to continue to support OLV school by sharing my expertise on how to enhance opportunities for students and teachers. OLV has many wonderful things to offer and I would love to see the school continue to grow and thrive. I think it would be great to present our school to the wider community as a faith based school which teaches the total person. A school which is proud of its Catholic identity leading by example and service in our daily lives.
I look forward to the potential opportunity to grow in my faith and bring my expertise as an educator, parent, and parishioner to the Board of Education at Our Lady of Victory School.
My name is Jessica Mohagen and my husband, Matthew, and I live in Elbow Lake with our two boys. Evan is 6 years old and attends 1st grade at OLV. Carter is 3 years old and will be attending preschool this fall at OLV. I feel very fortunate to have a Catholic school in our community that our boys can attend. Not only do they get an excellent education at OLV but they also learn to incorporate God into their everyday life.
For the past two years I have been on the Gala committee. It always amazes me how our community rallies together for our children. We receive so many generous donations knowing that the end goal is to better our children's future here at OLV.
I enjoy being involved in our school. I have the most fun attending field trips with my son's class. Their minds never stop learning and they always have interesting questions. I love that OLV feels like one big happy family here. I want to continue to see OLV grow and mold our children into caring young members of society.
My name is Isaac Jensen. I was born and raised in Fergus Falls, and was baptized and confirmed at Our Lady of Victory Church. I have been married for eight years to my wife Danielle Jensen, and we have one daughter, Hazel, who is attending OLV school as a kindergartener this year.
I have spent the last eight years as a Civil Affairs Specialist in the Army Reserves where my work was focused on humanitarian assistance and support to civil administration. After returning from my deployment to Djibouti, Africa, I returned to school through Penn State University’s World Campus to obtain my undergraduate in International Politics with the intent to obtain my master’s in Community and Economic Development. I also volunteer as a firefighter and first responder through the Foxhome Fire Department. I look forward to getting the opportunity to get involved with the school board.
Hello, my name is Kristi Thoma and I am running for Board of Education to have a more active role in the OLV School. My husband Mark and I have 2 girls who attend kindergarten and first grade. I love the smaller class sizes, the great teachers, the opportunities to participate in fieldtrips, and that all the kids know each other. I want to help the school to continue to provide the highest level of education and opportunities for each student.
