    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!  

  • Kim Pacer

    Pre-k 3 MWF

    I have been part of the SJV family for 14 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.


    PRE-K 4

    This is my second 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.

  • This is my second 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.

  • Mrs. Scupien has been teaching for 14 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 8 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 third 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.

    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 6-8 Social Studies

    This is my 3rd 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.


    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! 


    With a lifelong background in choral singing, dance, piano, and musical theater, it is a pleasure to be teaching general music at SJV!  
    Students from PreK through 8th grade sing strong together with sign language incorporated at our weekly school masses.

    Our school-wide performances have returned to live concerts for Christmas and Spring Praise.  We are pleased to share our talents to inspire joy and lift spirits!
