1st Grade

Meet the Teacher:

    Hi, my name is Angie Dietiker and I am teaching 1st grade this year.  I have been teaching at St. Rose for 18 exciting years.  I have been married to my husband Kevin for 25 years and have 3 amazing children.  My daughter is a graduate from St. Rose and Trinity Catholic high school. She is in her fourth year at SIUE studying Pharmacy. My son Trenton graduated from St. Rose and is a Freshman at Lindenwood..  Last, but not least is my son Aidan, he is a graduate from St. Rose and is a freshman at Duchesne.  Our family is "big" into soccer and if I'm not at school you can find me out on a soccer field somewhere.  I'm very excited about this school year and can't wait for all the fabulous learning to take place.


Welcome to first grade!

Specials:  Monday- Art/Music
                 Tuesday- Art/Music and PE
                 Wednesday-  Spanish
