ND Honors Retirees

The Notre Dame community gathered together at a luncheon on June 16 to honor this year's retirees, each who have dedicated many years of service to the students of Notre Dame High School.
 
Mrs. Amy Kimtis retires after 22 ½  years of service in various areas. Mrs. Kimtis began as a substitute faculty assistant and then moved to the Leprechaun Shop. Next she was the face of Notre Dame in the reception area. Finally, it was determined her skills were best utilized in the Main Office as an administrative assistant. Mrs. Kimtis worked for a number of years there before moving to the College and School Counseling Office where she has remained for the last several years. 
 
Mrs. Kimtis told us, “I have enjoyed meeting and getting to know many of the students and their families through the years. Notre Dame has had many very talented students graduate and I have been lucky to have been a small part of their lives.”
 
Mrs. Eileen Marx has been a faculty member for the past 20 years. While at Notre Dame, she started the school newspaper, The Voice, and taught Journalism for six years. Mrs. Marx also taught the senior World Religions course every year since 2002. In addition, she taught Honors Senior Religion and Philosophy, Freshman Religion, and for two years, an elective, Women and Faith. 
 
From 2015 until 2021, she served as the lead faculty moderator for the SHADES Club. Mrs. Marx said, “It was truly some of the most fulfilling work I have ever been a part of. The students in the SHADES Club showed so much courage and taught me so much. I was changed forever. The students organized and served as leaders of a Mass for Diversity and Social Justice; a school-wide Hoops for Hope basketball tournament that raised more than $10,000 for people in need; and an annual SHADES Retreat that involved many of our faculty and students groups at Notre Dame. I was so inspired that every event came directly from the SHADES students and was rooted in their faith and the Gospel values of peace and justice. They are all  such shining examples of the hope and healing the world is so desperately in need of today. I was also blessed to work with Rose Stevenson, Isabel Berko, and Jacqui Coppola as co-moderators and dear friends in this important work.”
 
Mrs. Kathy Stueber also retires after 20 years of service as an educator at Notre Dame High School. She has been the Learning Needs Coordinator working in the College and School Counseling Office, for the length of her tenure at ND. Mrs. Stueber, a special education teacher, told us she had always wanted to work in a Catholic school and that dream came true in 2002 when she applied to Notre Dame after visiting with her daughter who would be an incoming freshman.
 
“I have spent the last 20 years working with wonderful, caring teachers and administrators. I always felt supported by former Principal Mary Liz Ivins and current Principal, Joanna Barlow. They believed in what we were doing for the kids with learning needs. The teachers I have worked with have been compassionate while still challenging my students. I thank all of my Notre Dame family for my wonderful experience,” said Mrs. Stueber.


We wish all of our retirees the very best in their next life journey. They will be missed but always remain members of the Notre Dame family!
