Tina Mertens
3rd Grade

I graduated from Saint Mary of the Plains College with a degree in Elementary Education.


What I love most about working at St. John’s:
I love being able to bring our faith in everything we do and every subject I teach. 

I feel that it gives me the opportunity to truly live out my faith.


Where I’m from:
Colorado Springs, Colorado


Interests and Hobbies:
I love to travel, spend time in the mountains, and be with my wonderful family.  I also enjoy photography and watching my daughters sporting events!


A personal note:
My husband and I have been married for 25 years.   We have 2 daughters.  One graduated from Saint John’s in 2014 and one will graduate this May. 

Favorite thing about teaching:
I love that I get to spend my day with kids!  They bring me laughter, joy, challenges and each day is different!
