U.S. history teacher Jeff Getty and Spanish teacher Stephanie Schulenborg joined the Scecina family this semester.

Mr. Getty, a graduate of Bishop Chatard High School, served in the U.S. Marine Corps Infantry and was a squad leader in Iraq. After returning to the United States, he instructed Reservists preparing to go to Iraq and Afghanistan. He then attended IUPUI. Mr. Getty and his wife of two years, Aimee, live in Indianapolis.

“I wanted to teach at Scecina because I grew up in the Catholic school environment and believe that the incorporation of faith in education is the best way for teachers and students to learn as well as be involved in the community,” Mr. Getty said.

He enjoys teaching history because he’s passionate about the topic, and believes that makes the subject more interesting to students.

“Also, I think it is fascinating to look back and study how the United has come so far so fast compared to the rest of the world,” he said. “I like teaching because I am excited to get to work every day. I cannot imagine another profession that would make me feel that way. I like when I see the look on the kids’ faces when they learn something new, or when they ask questions about a subject because they are interested and want to learn more about it.”

Mrs. Schulenborg works part time at Scecina. She has many years of experience, with 33 years at Lawrence Township Schools, where she taught Spanish, as well as English and AVID (a college prep course). “There are four generations of teachers in my family,” she said.

She chose to teach Spanish “because I liked learning about new cultures, and I found I had an aptitude for the language. I also love to travel.”

She’s originally from Huntington, Ind., and received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Ball State University. She and her husband have two grown children, who teach elementary school in Carmel.

Her husband taught at Scecina for three years after he retired from Lawrence. She is excited about working at Scecina.

“I am really enjoying teaching in a private school. I love the smaller classes, and enjoy being able to get to know my students,” Mrs. Schulenborg said.

She’s an animal lover who has a dog, two cats and a horse. Her favorite hobby is riding dressage and showing.
