Teresa Kitchen has been named Principal at St. Wendelin Catholic School, effective July 1st. Kitchen is in 1995 alumna of the school. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Education-Intervention Specialist from Bowling Green State University (2000) and a Master of Education in Educational Administration from Grand Canyon University (2012). Kitchen was a Martha Holdings Jennings Scholar in 2009. Since 2012, Kitchen has been registered on the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System (OTES) as a credentialed evaluator of teachers. She has five-year professional licenses in both Education of the Handicapped and Principal.

St. Wendelin is grateful Cathy Krupp returned to serve as Principal in the fall of 2015. She will soon enter into retirement, effective June 30th. As a 1973 graduate of St. Wendelin Catholic School and as a previous elementary teacher and principal, Krupp brought experience, school spirit and more to her role over the past two years. Krupp is looking forward to fishing with her husband, Terry, and spending time with their three sons (Chad, Andy, and Dominic) as well as their growing families.

Kitchen’s previous positions include being an Intervention Specialist at Hancock County Educational Service Center (2001-2004) and at PATHE (Positive Approach to Handle Emotions) Program through Wood County Educational Service Center. The program provides students attending school districts in Wood County, as well as, Fostoria and Fremont City Schools with specially designed instruction and services for students with disabilities. Most recently, she held the position of Intervention Supervisor/Principal for grades K-12 through the PATHE Program. Kitchen will bring a lifetime of experience as an administrator and as a teacher to her new position as Principal for St. Wendelin.

In addition to being an experienced educator, Kitchen and her family are dedicated parishioners of St. Wendelin Catholic Church. Her husband, Sam, is a 1992 graduate of SWCS. Their three children attend St. Wendelin Catholic School—Elijah (8th grade), Ella (6th grade) and Isaac (4th grade).
