Ms. Dal Bello is an alum of St. Catherine! She received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2015 and completed my Multiple Subject Credential Program at St. Mary’s College in 2018. She was a substitute teacher for several years and taught K-8, but her favorite grade by far is Kindergarten! This is her third year teaching at St. Catherine’s, and she is looking forward to a fun year of learning and growing with our youngest students.

4th and 5th Grade

My name is Brittany Rogers. I am so excited and blessed to be teaching your child this year! With God as our center, I know we will accomplish so much learning with many smiles and successes.

I have been teaching for eight years. I have taught grades 3 through 6. After some time off to be home with my boys, I am excited to return to the classroom. I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. The Catholic faith has always been a big part of my life and I am excited to share my love for Jesus with the students. I hope I can learn from and follow their child like love for our Lord.

I am excited to get to know each child on a more personal level. My goal is to meet them where they are right now and challenge them as the year progresses. I look forward to working with you to make the year successful for your child.

Ms. Perla joined the St. Catherine of Siena School community in 2021. She is excited to teach humanities as it is the study of history and development of human thought and culture. This will be accomplished by focusing on studying a blend of literature, history, philosophy, art and film. By the end of the year you will have a greater understanding of world history and the human experience through research, reading and writing.
