Teacher of the Month - Mrs. Abby Rezac

We have some very exciting news to share about one of our amazing teachers. Mrs. Abby Rezac is our 1st grade teacher here at St. Patrick's. Abby was chosen by the Lincoln East Rotary Club as the Teacher of the Month. They receive many nominations of teachers throughout the city, both in the public and parochial system, so this is a great honor for Mrs. Rezac to receive.

Mrs. Rezac graduated from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln in May of 2009, and from college went on to teach at Lincoln Public Schools for one year. In 2011 she began teaching here at St. Pat’s. She loves working with children and seeing them grow in more ways than one, and appreciates the atmosphere of teaching. Meeting new students, families, and working with her fellow staff members is her favorite!!

Her co-workers, Mrs. Diane Neujhar and Miss Sarah Swim, wrote some very encouraging words for her:

"Mrs. Rezac is very organized and helps students learn rules, procedures and expectations to help them be successful in and out of the classroom. She always goes above and beyond to make accommodations and modifications for her students. She has touched many lives and will continue to make a great impact in the future. She always strives to be the best teacher she can be. Mrs. Rezac is truly an amazing teacher and we are very lucky to have her here at St. Patrick School."

Mrs. Rezac very humbly accepted the award saying, "I have always had an affinity for children, finding fulfilment in their excitement when they learn a new skill, develop new relationships, and grow in their faith. I am so lucky to go to work each and every day and watch my students grow in more ways than one. This award has truly melted my heart, and made me feel so special. I feel very undeserving as I know there are many other educators in our great city, and state, helping shape and mold the lives of our future. Although it is difficult to express into words I will accept it with the upmost honor and thanks. My students are the most important aspect of my career, and although it’s my job to be the best teacher I can be, they are the ones who teach me each and every day. I am so lucky to work at St. Pat’s…GO SHAMROCKS!"

Mrs. Rezac received a plaque and $100 from Union Bank for personal use and $100 from the Rotary Club for classroom use. She already has plans to paint her classroom with the money!!
