Grades Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 4 Teachers

Miss Ann Mangan

Pre-Kindergarten & Kindergarten

I received my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Michigan in 2005. In the spring of 2011 I received my Masters degree in Science and Education from Walden University. I have also earned my Advanced Catechetical Certification through the Diocese of Lansing.  I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, and I have been a member of Christ the King parish my entire life.  I love teaching at a Catholic school, and being able to share my faith with my students. In my free time I enjoy watching sports, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends.  Please feel free to contact me with any questions about our Kindergarten or Pre-Kindergarten programs at msmangan@holyspiritrcs.org.

 

 

Mrs. Laura Ceresa

Grades 1 & 2

My name is Laura Ceresa. This is my sixth year teaching here at Holy Spirit Catholic School.  I am married and have two children, and we are members at St. John’s Catholic Church in Howell.

I received my B.A. in Elementary Education with an Early Childhood Endorsement from Eastern Michigan University, and my Master’s in the Art of Teaching from Marygrove College . I also have my Advanced Catechetical Certificate.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching 1st and 2nd grade!  I feel that at this age especially, children have such a love for life and truly possess a desire to please.   Students become so excited when they learn something new, which makes teaching fun!  I like seeing them grow as readers.  I am so blessed to have the opportunity each year to prepare my 2nd grade students to celebrate their First Reconciliation and receive their First Holy Communion.

Outside of school I love spending time with my family! We enjoy swimming, biking, and kayaking together.  I also enjoy reading, cooking, and baking.

You may contact me at msceresa@holyspiritrcs.org if you have any questions about 1st or 2nd grade or the Sacraments received during students’ 2nd grade year.

 

 

 Miss Kelly Hager

Grades 3 & 4

I attend St. Patrick Catholic Church in Brighton, Michigan. I graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education as well as a certification in Social Studies in grades 6-8. After graduating from EMU, I was a 2nd grade long-term substitute teacher at Creekside Elementary in Hartland, Michigan.  I have been teaching third and fourth grade at Holy Spirit Roman Catholic School for four years.

Outside of school and church, I like to spend my time traveling. The past couple of years I spent my holiday breaks traveling to France, Belgium, Germany, and Spain. During the summer months, I love to garden. I also enjoy swimming and taking my two dogs, Sammy and Eddy, for walks around my neighborhood. I am an avid reader and try to read at least 3 books a month.  My contact information is mshager@holyspiritrcs.org if you have any questions about third or fourth grade here at Holy Spirit School.
