Lora Maertens

I am very excited to join St. John the Baptist School as the new first-grade teacher. I originally graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2010 with a degree in mathematics. I joined Minnesota Math Corps, a non-profit in-school tutoring program and fell in love with teaching, so I enrolled in Augsburg’s graduate program to obtain my teaching license. I have been teaching for 7 years, and I am thrilled to return to the younger grade level!

I grew up south of Hastings, in Ravenna Township, but moved north of the cities when my parents retired while I was in college. I attended St. Elizabeth Ann Seton School in Hastings, and I have always had a strong connection to Catholic Education. After marrying my husband, Sean, we slowly made our way back south to Rosemount, where we now live with our daughter. Joining this community so close to my childhood is a sense of coming home.

I’m a huge fan of old-school video games, love to bake, and will willingly do math problems for fun!
