Junior High/High School Social Science Teacher

TMP-Marian is pleased to announce that Kate Ebbert has accepted the position of Junior High/High School Social Science Teacher.  She begins her role in preparation for the 2018-2019 school year.

Ebbert recently graduated from the University of Kansas in May, with a Bachelor of Science in Secondary Education, Emphasis in History and Government. “I always wanted to be a teacher! My love for history made Social Studies a natural fit,” said Ebbert.

Ebbert grew up in Tonganoxie, Kansas, located in the Kansas City metropolitan area. While Tonganoxie is close to KC, the population is only 5,195 leading Ebbert to like Hays’ friendly atmosphere.  “I am looking forward to teaching in Hays. I feel Hays is a supportive, welcoming community to begin my teaching career,” Ebbert beamed. This will be her first experience in the classroom and she is looking forward to the challenges and excitement that will bring.  Ebbert said her philosophy in the classroom will be, “Learning together not individually. I want the children to have a very hands on experience.”

“Ms. Ebbert brings an energy for collaboration and problem solving to the Junior High and High School Social Science Classrooms,” Principal Chad Meitner said.  “I’m most excited to see her modeling a positive attitude and vibrant faith to our students. I believe our Junior High kids will connect with her right away!”
