Courtney Shaw

Kindergarten Teacher


Meg Van Minsel

Kindergarten Teacher's Aide

My name is Miss Courtney and I am the Kindergarten teacher for Holy Spirit Catholic School. This will be my fifth year teaching at Holy Spirit. I earned my bachelor and master degrees in early childhood education from ISU and worked at the Early Childhood Partnership School for three years before taking a break to stay home with my own children. I was a kindergarten aide here at HSCS for two years, the 4 year old Pre-K teacher for four years and now am excited to be back in kindergarten for a second year.

I believe most educators have a “sweet spot” for teaching; that just right age group they were meant to teach and enjoy working with most.  For me, these earliest school years are that spot.  We are lucky enough to have a full time aide in our class as well.  Miss Meg (aka Pirate Meg or Nanny...she’s got a lot of hats!) will be helping us out every day this year as well.  Please reach out to me if you have any questions about our Kindergarten program.
