Gayle Thelen

I graduated from Portland High School in 1980 and then graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a major in Language Arts and a minor in History.

I was a substitute teacher for St. Patrick School for four years and SS Peter & Paul in Ionia for one year. I have taught at St. Patrick School since 2009.

“St. Patrick School is a great place to teach, learn, and grow. As a teacher and a parent of three St. Patrick graduates, I’m confident that each child is receiving a quality education while their faith is incorporated into the curriculum daily. The support of the staff, students, and parents at St. Pat’s is phenomenal!  GO ROCKS!”
