Mrs. Woodard has been teaching at St. Joseph since 2011. She received her Master's Degree in Education from MVNU, as well as her Reading Endorsement. Her undergrad work was completed at The Ohio State University. She lives in Shelby with her husband, Zach, her two stepchildren, their two year old son, Sullivan (who is the absolute apple of her eye), and their beagle, Shamus. She is a huge animal lover and enjoys spending time with her family and friends. When asked why she wanted to become a teacher, Mrs. Woodard stated, "I always knew I wanted to become a teacher. My father is a teacher, and I learned at an early age that I wanted his job.I have many great memories of my teachers throughout school. Many of them left lasting impressions. I wanted to be able to be that person for someone else. Watching a student gain confidence in themselves is the best part of my job. Plus being a teacher requires me to always remain young at heart, and who wouldn't love that?" We also asked what she loved most about working at St. Joseph. She said, "St. Joseph is a school unlike any others I have seen. We are a family. Everyone here truly cares about the well being of each and every one of our students and staff. The students are not only learning academically, but they are learning to be amazing role models and followers of God. I couldn't be more proud of where I work." 

Thank you, Mrs. Woodard, for all you do here at St. Joseph!
