Education

Hi! I’m Robyn Theriault and I am the second grade teacher here at St. Joseph’s School. I went to Burlington High School where I was blessed to travel to Paris and spend time studying. After that, I ventured out to Maine to earn my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Maine-Presque Isle. While attending UMPI, I traveled to Russia to study for a short time. After returning to Wisconsin, I attended the University of Phoenix in Brookfield, obtaining my Master’s in Organizational Management degree. I worked for many years as a substitute teacher in the Waterford and Big Bend areas before finding my home at St. Joseph’s. 

Philosophy

I believe it takes all of us to raise positive, happy, successful children today. We can’t, and shouldn’t be left alone to handle all that life gives us. My favorite quote is from Helen Keller: “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.”

My many years as a substitute teacher afforded me the gift of seeing “best practices” in action. Over the years, I’ve been able to see first-hand what has worked best in classrooms, and I’m able to incorporate those successful practices into my room.

My favorite part of working at St. Joseph’s is the family atmosphere among teachers, staff, parents and students. We all deeply care. We all get involved. We all work together to help each other. We truly are one big family who works together to give children a safe, happy and top-notch educational experience.

Interests

My family loves to camp. My husband (of 25 years) and I enjoy the outdoors and spend a lot of time there. My children (Myles, 17 and Mira, 16) are gifts from God and we are all very close. My class knows that my family loves the Packers, and we proudly cheer them on! We also enjoy geocaching, which is finding hidden treasures all over by using location clues.
