Mrs. Caroline Strong

Greetings!  My name is Caroline Strong and as you probably know, I am new to the St. Anthony staff.  I am mom to Evan (9th grader at Catholic Central) and Grace (8th grader at St. Stephen) as well as wife to David.  We live on the East side of the city and our home parish is St. Stephen, but be assured I am a West Sider at heart, having graduated from West Catholic in 1985.


I recently completed Grand Valley State University’s Graduate Teacher Certification program.  I received my Bachelor of Arts in English (with a minor in Psychology) from GVSU in 1992.  Instead of going directly into teaching, I entered the world of business.  Upon becoming a mom, I chose to stay home with my children.  Suddenly, I found myself in the classroom!  It started out as a room parent, chaperone for numerous field trips, lunch room/playground volunteer, fundraising co-chair, Home and School VP, Home and School President, substitute teacher, and aiding part-time.  When a full-time opening came about at St. Stephen as a teacher’s aide, I jumped on it.  I found myself co-teaching with the classroom teachers and wanting a classroom of my own so here I am today!


I am thrilled to be a member of the St. Anthony staff.  I am excited about teaching your children and guiding them on their journey as a writer!  Please feel free to stop in or email me with any questions or comments!


Blessings to you and your family!
