Luke Jacobson 8th Grade, Physical Education, & Athletic Director

Hi, my name is Paige Wirkus. While teaching here at St. Mary's, I am going to have a variety of roles, which include 7/8th grade homeroom, 8th grade spelling and religion, and 4th - 8th grade Phy. Ed. teacher, along with being a math specialist for all grades. After graduating from Marathon High School, I continued my education at UW-Marathon County and later received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics Education at UW-Stevens Point. So far in my teaching career I have been a long term substitute and 2nd grade teacher for the D.C. Everest School District, and a long term substitute for Marathon Area Elementary School and St. Mary's School.

I currently live in Marathon with my family. I am the oldest of four children. I have two sisters, Brianna and Morgan, and one brother, Preston. Since we are a very "sporty" family, most of our time is spent cheering on each other and the Marathon Red Raiders or playing a variety of sports, especially volleyball. I also enjoy reading books, painting, and playing with our dogs, Grizzly and Dexter.

I am really looking forward to returning to the school I attended and working with students of all ages! Math has always been a fun subject for me to learn and teach because of the many everyday life applications. As for Phy. Ed., I am very passionate about fitness and want to help others develop a sense of wellness that they will utilize throughout their life! St. Mary's helped shape me into the person I am today, and I hope that by exhibiting core Catholic values I am able to have the same positive impact on my students that my teachers had on me.
