New teacher Ms. Bresnahan brings a passion for science to her classroom

Anthony Martin, Staff writer

Ms. Madeleine Bresnahan is one of our new teachers this year at St. Joseph High School. This is her first-year teaching, but she is not new to the subjects that she teaches.

Ms. Bresnahan is from Grayslake, a northwest suburb of Chicago. She attended high school at Grayslake Central High School and went to college at Saint Louis University in St. Louis, Missouri. She currently has a bachelor’s degree of Science in Exercise Science, a master’s degree in Athletic Training, and is working on a Master of Arts in Teaching.

Before she become a teacher, she was an athletic trainer at Mundelein High School.

Ms. Bresnahan became a teacher because she is passionate about science and wanted to spread her knowledge not only to the athletes, but also the students. The St. Joseph community has welcomed Ms. Bresnahan with open arms.

“I really like it here. It’s a very nice community,” said Ms. Bresnahan.

Ms. Bresnahan likes to read a lot and play complicated, strategic board games. She also like to hang out with friends and family and travel.

When asked what the best advice she had ever received, this is what Ms. Bresnahan had to say:             “Don’t worry about what other people think.”

With this mindset, very little will be able to interfere with her goals. Welcome to St. Joe’s.
