Meet Mrs. Therese Drey

It's hard to believe I've been working in education or teaching for 27 years, and 25 of those years have been at St. Augustin Catholic School! I also spent about six years as a substitute teacher. I teach middle school religion and am the librarian. 

I grew up in Storm Lake, Iowa, and attended Mount Marty College in Yankton, SD, and DMACC here in Des Moines. I received my BA from Simpson College and my MA from the University of Northern Iowa.

What I like most about teaching: Every day is different! I get to watch the students grow and learn, and I learn right along with them. I also get to share my love of books and my love of Christ and his Church with them each day.

About my family: I am married to Marv Drey. We have four children: Matt, Michael, Annie and Mary Beth and 10 grandchildren!

What I enjoy doing outside of school: Marv and I enjoy traveling and antiquing together. We are very active in our parish, Christ the King. Our greatest joy is spending time with our children and grandchildren.
