4th Grade

Ms. Beth Tanner
4th Grade Teacher

Ms. Tanner graduated from Northern Arizona University in December 2018. She graduated from SSJ in 2011 and from Bourgade Catholic High School in 2015. It was always her dream since she began her journey of becoming a teacher to return and teach at SSJ. She feels incredibly blessed to have that opportunity to make that dream come true. She feels that the community at SSJ has played an important role in her life and helped her become the person she is today. She would like to have the same impact on her students as the teachers at SSJ had on her and to help them continue to grow in their faith while pursuing their education.

Mrs. Sara Miller
4th Grade Teacher
Mrs. Sara Miller began teaching in 1995, and her first year at SSJ was in 2009… She says, “The reason I teach is that I love kids and I love school! I have three daughters, all of whom have graduated from SSJ. We discovered SSJ through our babysitter’s family – and we are so glad that we did!”
