Mrs. Jennifer Hering has chosen to stay at home and travel more with her husband Tyler.  Mrs. Hering will be observed substitute teaching from time to time at Bergan into the future.  Due to class size growth, an additional Fifth / Sixth grade position was also needed to for next school year.   This left Archbishop Bergan Catholic Elementary with two Fifth / Sixth grade teaching positions to fill.

Caitlin (Caiti) Lilienthal has been hired as the Fifth and Sixth Grade Language Arts and Theology instructor.  Caiti is currently finishing her student teaching at Saddlebrook Elementary with Omaha Public Schools.  She will graduate in May 2019 from Midland University with a degree in Elementary Education and Coaching.  Caiti’s practicum and student teaching experiences have been at a number of area schools and she has coached a number of area youth athletic teams as well.  "We at Archbishop Bergan Catholic are excited to announce the hiring of Ms. Caitlin Lilienthal.  Caiti brings personality, experiences, and work ethic that will serve Bergan Elementary well.  Her passion for her faith along with her efforts as a student leader and volunteer at Midland match our school mission," Koenig said.
