    I'm very excited to return to St. John Vianney for my second year working in the Pre- K3 program.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Education from Medaille College.  My goal is for my students to have the best experience possible and hope my efforts will enable them to have fun and be proud of their accomplishments.  I set the stage for my students to become lifelong learners!  



  • I have been part of the SJV family for 13 years.  My hopes are that each student develops a love for learning while having fun!  I am truly honored to help start your child’s educational journey.

  • Erin Szymanski

    Pre-K 4

    This is my first year at Saint John Vianney. I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with a Bachelor”s Degree in Childhood Education and a Minor in Music. I love coming in and seeing the excitement of the children each day and to learn from each. I incorporate music and movement into my teaching because every child has a different way of learning. This allows each child to express themselves along with enjoying and grasping the fundamentals. My goal is for each child to get excited to learn while also teaching them the skills they need to become successful in their day-to-day learning. I’m so happy to be part of the SJV family.

  • Mrs. Manley has been an educator at SJV for more than twenty years.  She received a Bachelor of Science in Elementary/Exceptional Education from SUNY College at Buffalo.  Mrs. Manley enjoys working with our preschool students and assists in providing a welcoming and nurturing learning environment that instills curiosity and creativity.

  • Sarah Eneix

    KINDERGARTEN

    This is my first-year teaching at St. John Vianney and I couldn’t be more excited for the

    opportunity. I graduated from Niagara University with my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Childhood education (Birth thru 6). More recently, I earned my Master’s degree in Literacy (Birth-12) and English as a Second language (Birth-12). With my background and knowledge of education, I strive to make learning fun, engaging and most of all memorable for the students. It is my goal to create a love of learning in my classroom and encourage students to have a growth mindset as they work towards their goals throughout their education and life.

  • I truly love working at St. John Vianney in a supportive environment.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Education / Special Education (1-6).  Also, I received my Master’s Degree in Differentiated Instruction with an extension in Special Education (B-2).   I love teaching first grade.  It is a pleasure to teach students who have a love for learning.  They are all such a joy to teach.

    GRADE 1

    Within the first few months of teaching at St. John Vianney, I quickly came to realize that I truly love the positive, supportive, and friendly environment that it encapsules. Ever since I was little, I knew I had a passion for teaching. I would spend hours upon hours playing “school” in my basement, saving every single paper and book from my real education to use in my own classroom with my pretend students. It is still hard to believe that my lifelong dream of wanting to be a teacher is now a reality but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I absolutely love what I do!

    I recently received my Master’s Degree in Literacy at SUNY Buffalo State and prior to that I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood and Childhood Education at SUNY Cortland. I strive to bring excitement and joy into the classroom every day so that the students can build their love for learning. My goal is to set each and every student up for success so that they can strive for excellence. 

  • I am very excited to be a part of the  Saint John Vianney family again this year. I graduated from Buffalo State College with a Bachelor's Degree in Childhood Education and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I love coming in each morning and seeing the excitement of the students, and I strive to make learning fun so each child I teach loves and wants to come to school.  I am so blessed to be part of this wonderful family at SJV!

  • Edward Kent

    GRADE 3

    I was born in Wilson, New York, on the shores of Lake Ontario. My parents were both teachers in the Wilson school district. I attended Niagara University, where I majored in Theatre Studies and English, and then also received my Masters Degree in Elementary Education from Niagara University.

    I’ve taught in Virginia Beach, and many years in the Diocese of Buffalo.

    I now live in West Seneca, and my three children attend Orchard Park High School. I am a self-published author with a few books to my name, with hopefully more to come.

  • Mrs. Scupien has been teaching for 13 years at SJV. She has a Bachelor's in Early Childhood Development from SUNY University at Buffalo and a Masters in Elementary Education from Medaille College. Teaching 4th grade has been her passion for the last 7 years. She promotes a fun and energetic learning environment enriched with our Catholic Faith. Mrs. Scupien incorporates STREAM activities and 21st Century Math Skills into her daily routine.

  • This is my third year teaching middle school ELA at SJV. I graduated from SUNY Fredonia with high honors as an English major with a minor in Psychology. I will be graduating with my masters degree in Secondary English Education this spring. I teach my students to always try their best, ask questions, and do not be afraid to make mistakes. I am so proud of my students and the growth I see each year. 

  • Mrs Woodrow is a dedicated educator with a diverse background of experience. She fell in love with the profession while working With children on the Navajo reservation in Arizona during her time in college. This inspired her to head home and pursue her Masters in Education from SUNY Oswego. Her journey eventually landed her in rural eastern Virginia where she could enjoy the water, nature, and history of the area while teaching 3rd-5th grade. Much of that time was spent as a school leader in science; running science fairs and opening her student’s minds to the wonder of science.

    Now, Mrs Woodrow is back home in NY so she may be closer to family. She is excited to be sharing her love of science with the middle school students of St John Vianney. In her free time she has a passion for theater, dance, and reading but most of her time is spent with her two young blessings; Maxwell and Henry.

     

  • I am a graduate of University at Buffalo, where I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Chemical Engineering. I attended Buffalo State College to get my Mathematics Teaching Certification. Currently, I am attending Buffalo State College to get my Masters in Mathematics Education.

    This is my second year teaching math, and I am glad to continue to be part of the SJV staff. I love mathematics and try to bring that enthusiasm into every lesson I teach!  I enjoy focusing on real world problems and making the math meaningful to the students.

    I am the 6th grade homeroom teacher.  I am also the 6th grade religion teacher, where this year we are focusing on the Old Testament.


    Additionally, I also teach technology 4-8. In 4th grade technology, we focus on typing skills and general computer skills. In the 5th and 6th grade, we focus on using various tools from the google workspace in order to help prepare students to do research, make presentations and analyze data. Our 7th and 8th graders are using the 3D printer this year! So far they have enjoyed it and I can't wait for them to make their own designs.

  • Katherine Cardino

    Grades 5-8 Social Studies

    This is my 2nd year at St John Vianney. I truly love it and feel like part of the family everyday. I graduated with my bachelors in history and my Masters in Adolescence Education, both from D’Youville College. History and social studies are my passion. I am truly living the dream by sharing my passion for history in a community I love with an age group I love teaching!
    My family is rooted in St John Vianney as parishioners (all my kids have received their sacraments thus far at SJV) and as students (my oldest two are students here). It is a joy and a pleasure to come here everyday.

  • SPANISH

    Me encanta enseñar a los estudiantes de SJV!  Following a career in chemical engineering, teaching dance to all ages, and a wide range of tutoring and volunteering, I had a wonderful experience as a substitute teacher at SJV.  I am thrilled to be utilizing long standing language skills to cultivate the enthusiasm of our Spanish students into a practical command of conversation and writing, with an appreciation of all the culture has to offer! 


    MUSIC

    With a lifelong background in choral singing, dance, piano, and musical theater, it is a pleasure to be teaching general music at SJV!  

    Our school-wide performances will continue in video format this year.  We are pleased to share our talents to inspire joy and lift spirits!


  • I graduated from Daemen College majoring in art education with a minor in sculpture. This is my second year at SJV. My favorite part about being an art teacher is seeing students grow artistically and academically. In art, students will work together to create their own works of art as well as describe, interpret and analyze others' works of art! The best part about being artists to me is that we can learn from our mistakes -engaging and persisting when things get tough, exploring and taking risks when trying something new, and developing our creativity. All art projects will follow the NYS Visual and Media Arts Standards. 

  • Austin Wittmer

    Gym

    This is my first year here at SJV. I graduated from Columbia Southern University with a Bachelors in Sports Management. I really enjoy coming in each day, teaching the students how to play and improve their skills at some of their favorite sports. My goal is for every student to find a sport they enjoy playing, and to help them become a better athlete.
