Mrs. Pam Starkenburg


Mrs. Pam Starkenburg is the all day kindergarten teacher and assists in music education. Previously she taught at Holy Cross from 1992 to 2006, then she was a stay at home mom from 2007-2014. She and her husband, Ryan, have two daughters and two sons; and now that all of them are in school at Holy Cross, 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. I love teaching 5 year olds about Jesus! Our classroom is full of learning and fun!

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 are a big family working side by side with you to help in the academic and spiritual training of your children.
