Mr. Liefer

I am thrilled to be in my 7th year here at Holy Childhood School. I began teaching at HCS fresh out of college from Eastern Illinois University, and Holy Childhood School and parish have developed me, not only professionally, but personally as well. This school, students, and families mean so much to my family and I.

Speaking of family, my wife, Mallory, and I welcomed our son Crue Nicholas on July 28th, 2016. Prior to becoming parents, we lived in Red Bud (where Mallory and I were born and raised) for the first two years of our marriage. We moved to Waterloo in October, 2016.

In addition to teaching 6th-8th grade English and Literature, I am in my 5th year as athletic director here at HCS. I also coach girls’ basketball and track. Coaching is a passion of mine, and I love giving back to the school as it has given me so much in return!

GO APACHES!
