Meet Our Team

Staff and administration for St. Maximilian Kolbe Catholic School share more than 50 years of experience in Catholic school education, and are often cited as the primary reason families choose to attend and to stay at our school. As active Catholic parents, we want an environment that enriches the faith we are trying to live.

What a blessing it is to be a part of the St. Maximilian Kolbe School family as the 3rd Grade teacher. Working in a strong Christian environment has been my fortune as I taught at St. Michael and St. Stephen’s Catholic Schools prior to coming here. When my children were young I made a shift to be home with them and started a Christian-based daycare business as well.

I am a proud alumnus of the College of St. Benedict with a BA in Elementary Education. My ongoing course work has a high concentration in behavioral studies. This focus has given me the tools I need to treat EVERY CHILD as a child of God who deserves to be understood and accepted for who they are. We work hard in second grade to understand that “fair is not equal” and differences are worth CELEBRATING! My favorite part of working at St. Max is sharing in the awe of God’s Grace anew each year as the children experience Reconciliation and the Eucharist for the very first time.

Families are welcome to schedule a "shadowing" visit in any classroom throughout the year to get better acquainted with us and hear our story. Contact Principal Mary Ziebell today to schedule an appointment or get more information (763.972.2528 or
