Hello and welcome to St. Vincent! I have been a stay-at-home mom of three for 19 years while working with our family business, BEST Plumbing. I have a BFA in Performing Arts and sing with my parish, as well as with a small ensemble of friends. I am happy to be the “mom of the school”! Every day is fun and interesting, and I love getting to know all the students and their families. Please contact me with any questions about our school!

Working as a tech teacher and coordinator combines two of my lifelong loves: elementary education and working with computers. I have a B.S. in Computer Science from Purdue University and I spent a decade in Massachusetts working in corporate settings as a software engineer. I firmly believe that all children growing up today will use computing technology in some capacity in their adult lives and those who are comfortable with the steady march of evolving technologies will be at a distinct professional advantage over those who are not. After moving to Ohio and staying at home while my children went to elementary school, I received a Master’s Degree in Instructional Design and Technology from UC. One of the things that I value the most about being at St. Vincent Ferrer is that it provides an opportunity to work in a private school setting where Christ’s love and example can be openly expressed.

My name is Jane Callan. I received a Masters of Education degree from Xavier University. Before coming to St.Vincent Ferrer School I taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grade at another Catholic school for twelve years. It has been a gift to be at St. Vincent Ferrer School for twenty five years as the librarian. I have two children and my son is a graduate of the school. Many dedicated volunteers have been so helpful in keeping our library a very special place for our students to develop a love for reading. Many blessings come from being a part of a Christ centered school like St. Vincent Ferrer.

Intervention Specialist

I am excited to be the intervention specialist at St. Vincent Ferrer! After graduating from Ohio University, I began my teaching career as a preschool teacher before moving to Chicago, Illinois where I taught kindergarten for several years. After returning to Cincinnati, I began working for the Hamilton County Educational Service Center as an early childhood intervention specialist. I spent 6 years teaching preschool students with special needs before moving to the school-age realm. I spent a year working at St. Ursula Villa before starting at St. Vincent Ferrer. I missed the first part of the year after having my first baby, Parker. Although I miss being at home with Parker, it was an easy transition back to work, because the students and staff here are so wonderful. My goal for the year is to help each of my students succeed to the best of their ability and to feel confident in the classroom.

Math Enrichment

I received my degree in Elementary Education from the University of Cincinnati and taught first grade in the Cincinnati Public Schools for 2 years. I stayed home with my family for a few years, substitute teaching in the Cincinnati Public, Northwest, Milford, and New Richmond Schools. I received a Reading Endorsement from the State of Ohio in January 2015. Although I love teaching Reading, I had an opportunity to teach Math at both St. James in White Oak and St. Susanna in Mason in the 2014-2015 year. I struggled with math as a child, but came to love it as an adult. I am enthusiastic about mathematics and I work to impart a sense of wonder with a gentle touch of empathy for kids who need extra help. I live in Golf Manor with my son Adam who is 12 and my husband Scott plus our two cats. I love to travel and to read. I am a fan of almost every sport.

Hello!  My name is Lori Dooley and I am looking forward to working with the wonderful students and staff at St. Vincent Ferrer School!  I graduated with a degree in elementary education from the University of Kentucky, where I met my husband of 27 years. I am a member of St Susanna Parish in Mason where I also taught Sunday school for 10 years. I taught fourth grade for seven years and gifted students in the primary grades for four more years in the Oak Hills Local School District.   I then chose to stay home with my 3 children and spent many hours volunteering in their schools, but missed the classroom so I became a substitute teacher for the Mason City School District.  This flexibility worked well as my children’s schedules and needs changed.  Now that my youngest child is heading off to college, I am excited to be back in a classroom setting, sharing my love and enthusiasm for learning!
