Our Staff

Dear Parents and Visitors,
Please check out our staff that is listed below.  All of us are very excited about the school year and look forward to seeing you at our various functions.

My name is Bethany Fewell, and I am the principal of St. Joseph School. I would like to welcome you to our school. We are very proud to say that St. Joseph is a vibrant faith community that works hard to show students how to know, love, and serve the Lord.

I am a graduate of Purdue University and Indiana Wesleyan University. I have been a Catholic educator for eleven years and enjoy the spiritual opportunities that Catholic schools offer to students.

My husband, Chad, and I are the proud parents of three boys.

Hello!  I am Mrs. Simpson, secretary of St. Joseph Catholic School.  My siblings and I all attended school here at St. Joseph, and my mother was the secretary for the school and the parish for many years.  My husband Tim and I love the spring, summer, and fall months for the gardening, boating, and camping we are able to do on weekends!  I currently enjoy my children, Monday – Friday, ranging from 3-11 years – all 126 of them…currently attending school here!
