Mrs. Renth

My name is Kathy Renth.  I grew up on a dairy farm in nearby Albers, Illinois and  attended Albers Elementary, Mater Dei High School, Kaskaskia College, and SIU-E. I am married and am the mother of 4 daughters. My daughters are all proud graduates of HCS!  My husband Rusty and I are also the grandparents of 8 grandsons who keep our hearts and hands full!

This is my 37th year teaching and my 30th year at Holy Childhood. I currently teach 5th-8th grade social studies and  5th-7th grade religion.  Needless to say, Holy Childhood is very close to my heart!
