Meet our team of dedicated staff. Here you will find a little background information on each of our teachers, support staff, and childcare workers.

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 earned by Bachelor of Science in Education from UW-Whitewater. My original certification was preschool to grade 3, but I felt encouraged to extend my certification to grade 6. I have taught over twenty years at St. Peter the Fisherman Catholic school, (formerly Two Rivers Catholic Central). I mainly taught 1st grade, but also preschool and 4th grade as well. In 1989, I taught Kindergarten here, at Ss. Peter & Paul! I was fortunate to be nominated and awarded the Kohl Fellowship. I have also been the Walmart Teacher of the Year in Manitowoc. My favorite subject to teach is Religion!

I graduated from Silver Lake College with a double major in Elementary Ed./Special Ed. I have been teaching for 25 years in Catholic education. Recently I have changed my classroom over to a classroom for personalized learning and the children have embraced it! In 2016, I was also a recipient of the Herb Kohl fellowship award. 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 & Robotics 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!
