I am Mrs. Huss and I love teaching the Pre-School class at St. Anthony of Padua Parish School! I have been teaching in my current role since 2008, where I have the privilege of working with children who have such an eagerness to learn! It is my goal to give our students the best foundation for spiritual and academic growth so that they can achieve the education they deserve. I grew up at St. Anthony of Padua Parish and am a proud alumna of St. Anthony School, Magnificat High School and John Carroll University. It is an honor to return to St. Anthony’s as an educator. Welcome to Pre-School!

I am Susan Delgado, and I am proud to be the Kindergarten teacher at St. Anthony of Padua School. My husband, Tony and I are the parents of Kate, Joe and Stephanie, all St. Anthony School graduates and the grandparents of 7! I began my career at St. Anthony School in 1988 when I was asked by the pastor if I would be interested in starting a preschool program. I said yes and I have been a part of the St. Anthony family ever since. My proudest moments are when young adults come back and say “Mrs Delgado, remember me?” I have taught many children of my former students and am colleagues with former students as well! I look forward to the coming school year and to the amazing learning experiences in store for my Kindergarten students. Welcome!

Hello. My name is Nicole Zientarski. I have been teaching preschool now for 5 years. I started my teaching career at St. Anthony School 21 years ago. I taught here for 2 years and then moved on to Lorain City Schools for 6 years. I then resigned to stay home with my 3 children and did not return until my youngest started Kindergarten here at St. Anthony School. After being a substitute teacher for 2 years, I was hired by St. Anthony School as the 3 year old preschool teacher. I truly have the best job in the world! I am a lifelong member of St. Anthony’s Parish and could not be happier to be home.

St. Anthony’s is the place where I started my teaching career and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I absolutely love my job, the students and the staff here at St. Anthony’s. My husband, Chriss and I are also grateful our son, Maxx, is a student at St. Anthony’s and loves it just as much. It truly is a blessing to be a part of such a wonderful place.
