Second Grade

Mrs. Demco has been teaching at St. Ambrose since 2006. Before coming here, she taught kindergarten and first grade at a local area Catholic school. Mrs. Demco attended the College of St. Catherine, where she received her Bachelor’s Degree, and the University of St. Thomas, where she received her Master’s Degree.

The idea of working with children and their families is what made Mrs. Demco decide to go into education. She believes all children are unique and meeting each child’s diverse needs is a priority for her. She feels that a child’s talents and areas for growth both need to be recognized, and that she works hard every day meeting their needs, improving their skills and enriching their love of learning. She wants her students to feel comfortable participating and actively learning in her classroom and strives to create an environment where all her students feel loved, appreciated and respected. She loves teaching language arts and reading. Mrs. Demco enjoys reading herself and feels that her enthusiasm for reading shows in her teaching. She loves discussing books with her students because their perceptions and interpretations of literature can be very interesting! 

Mrs. Demco feels that being part of a Catholic school means being part of a tightly-knit community. She feels that St. Ambrose encourages close relationships among families and among teachers, which are both important to her. She also loves biking, visiting museums and zoos, and attending movies with her children. 

“One thing I have learned from working with second graders is that just when I think I’ve seen everything, a student will say or do something altogether unexpected and original. Their perceptions, personalities and individuality make every day and every hour unique, valuable and unpredictable. I wouldn’t trade jobs with anybody.” – Jill Demco
