Mrs. Claire Batherson
Mrs. Batherson is the Computer Technology Teacher at St. Luke Parish School and began her career here in 2014. She received her Bachelor of Science in Marketing from Northern Illinois University in 1983 and her teaching certification from Trinity Christian College in 2009. Mrs. Batherson has taught in multiple classrooms from Pre-K through 8th grade, including ELL and self-contained classrooms, during her four years as a substitute teacher. In 2016, she became a grandmother for the first time to Will and is loving every minute of it. In February of 2019, she became a grandmother again to Julia. What a difference! Mrs. Batherson believes that teaching in a Catholic school is wonderful because of the sense of community and faith present every day and that Christian values are emphasized in every subject and in the lives of the students and staff.
