2nd Grade Teacher
Shelley Paige is excited to be back at St. John’s this year teaching second grade. Mrs. Paige holds a B.S. in Foundations of Education and a Master’s in Elementary Education from the University of Minnesota. When she is not teaching, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Barry, two teenage daughters, Brianna and Ayla, and Blue Heeler/Australian Shepherd mix, Starr. She also loves visiting her family in Door County, Wisconsin where she loves to be at the beach on Lake Michigan, take walks in the country, and bike around the county.
2nd Grade Teacher
Betsey Krohn graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Elementary Education (grades 1-6) with a concentration in English Literature. She has been teaching since her college graduation in 1994. In those years, she has taught at Breck School, St. Paul Academy and Summit School, and within the Mounds View School District. She was fortunate enough to even spend part of a year teaching middle school math at SJB! Outside of teaching, she has been a swim coach for over 20 years. When she is not working, you can find her spending as much time as possible with her family. Her husband, Scott, is an art teacher and coach at Irondale High School. Her son, Tyler, is working and teaching at St. Paul Academy in the theater department. Her daughter, Lindsey, graduated from St. Thomas as an Elementary Education major. At home, you will find her curled up in a cozy chair with a cup of coffee and reading stacks of books (mostly non-fiction). She and her husband head to the North Shore as much as possible for Lake Superior adventures. Mrs. Krohn is looking forward to another great year at SJB!
