Mrs. Pam Starkenburg is the morning kindergarten teacher and assists in music education. Previously she taught at Holy Cross from 1992 to 2006. She and her husband, Ryan, have two daughters and two sons; and now that all of them are in school, she has returned to teaching.

My teaching philosophy:

To teach students about the life and love of Christ their Savior, to equip them with knowledge in all subject areas and to be responsible, loving Christian citizens.


My favorite Bible verse:

Psalm 27:1 The Lord is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid? Knowing that the Lord has all in His control is a comforting promise for me.


Why consider a Holy Cross education:

Students who attend Holy Cross will receive a Christ-centered, top-notch curriculum in a nurturing Christian environment. The loving teachers and staff members will work side by side with you to help in the academic and spiritual training of your children.

Mrs. Katherine Larsen is the afternoon Kindergarten teacher and previously taught preschool at Holy Cross for two years. She and her husband, Kris, live in Madison with their three pets. 

My teaching philosophy:

I believe that each child is an individual, loved and created by  God. My goal is to share Jesus' love with the students, and to equip children with the tools and a firm foundation on which to build their faith and their education. 


My favorite Bible verse:

I love the verses that remind us we are never alone. One of my favorites is Isaiah 41:10: "So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."


Why consider a Holy Cross education:

Here at Holy Cross, we not only teach your children their A-B-C's and 1-2-3's, but we also teach them about the immeasurable love the Savior has for them. The staff will work with you and your child to create an education that will prepare them for all aspects of their lives.
