Teacher Bio

 

Mr. John Livingston is happy to be teaching ELA to both the 7th and 8th grade this year, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to work with his nephew David, an experienced teacher of middle-school math. Although this is only his second year as a "full-time" teacher, John Livingston is no stranger to the classroom, or to the Catholic community of Topeka and the Archdiocese.  He is a graduate of Sacred Heart Elementary School and Hayden High School.  He has served for a number of years as Music Minister, Youth Minister and Director of Religious Education at Mater Dei Parish, where he also teaches the 8th grade confirmation class.  He formerly was the Archdiocesan coordinator for Teens Encounter Christ (TEC) and still serves on the core group for that program, as well as filling various roles on the retreat teams.  John earned his degree in History and Secondary Education at Washburn University, where he was awarded the Nall public speaking award, Teacher of Promise, and Outstanding Secondary Teacher, and has since added his certification for middle school ELA. Mr. Livingston has two beautiful daughters who have given him two beautiful granddaughters. In his spare time he loves to read or listen to audio books, play his guitar, and enjoys sci-fi and programs like Marvel's Agents of Shield, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Dr. Who.

Check those backpacks!

Parents,

Please be checking your students' backpacks daily!  We often send home permission slips and other vital information.  We also encourage you to look at your student's agenda book daily, just to keep up with what they are doing at school.
