Hi, my name is Amy Licata. This is my eighth year as the third grade teacher St. Louis. I started my teaching career at Catholic schools in Omaha, Nebraska, where I taught 4th and 7th grades and later was a Resource Room teacher. I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s Degree in Learning Disabilities from Creighton University. I am married and have three daughters who graduated from St. Louis and then attended Holy Family High School. I am a native Nebraskan and an avid Nebraska Cornhusker fan!
I love teaching third grade because my students are so eager to learn. My goal is to help students achieve their personal best and to reach their full potential. Our students are taught the same curriculum, but I differentiate within the classroom so that all students can be successful. I have high academic and personal expectations for my students and I strive to provide a caring and respectful environment where everyone treats each other with respect. My favorite part of teaching is when I see that look of understanding on a child’s face that says- “I got it!”
I feel blessed to be a teacher at St. Louis as I have the opportunity to teach students in a rigorous academic environment while enriching their faith. St. Louis is a great place to teach and to grow as a community.
