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!  I am also the grandmother of 6 grandsons and am looking forward to cuddling my 7th grandchild in August this year!

This is my 35th year teaching and my 28th 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!
