Mr. Kerry Sievert - Principal/Religion

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education from UW-Oshkosh and a Masters degree in Administrative Leadership from UW-Milwaukee. I have been a Catholic school administrator since 1983 and have been at Divine Savior since 2013. Maintaining and developing a strong Catholic identity in the school is at the heart of my ministry. An equally strong focus is curriculum development, and I am proud of the staff's development of a personalized learning model with integration of blended learning opportunities for the students.

Mrs. Diane Cherney - ELA First & Second Grade

As a graduate of Silver Lake College with an English Major, I am right at home in our 1st and 2nd grade Literacy Center. My goal is to instill a love of learning in each child. Our Literacy Center is a busy room where learners grow academically, spiritually, and socially. In 2014, I was honored to receive the Herb Kohl Award for Excellence in Education. When I have free time, I enjoy biking, traveling with my family, and collecting antiques.

I believe that all children learn at their own pace, and my job is to keep them moving forward and succeeding!

Mrs. Martha Holst - Math K-8

I began my teaching career many moons ago at Holy Rosary. I was then hired to teach at Divine Savior when we combined. My degree is in Elementary Ed with a minor in math. I took that because, as all my students know, MATH IS FUN! My husband and I have been married for 32 years and have 2 grown and married children. We also have 2 beautiful grandchildren. I am truly blessed!
