Mrs. Jeanine O'Malley
My name is Jeanine O'Malley and this is my third year teaching at St. Cajetan.
I do come here with many years of experience though. After getting my B.S. in Early Childhood Education from Illinois State University, I taught Preschool for ten years. I then took a break from teaching as my family grew and I decided to spend some time at home with my own young children. I temporarily left running a classroom full of Preschoolers to run a houseful of Preschoolers! As for my family, my husband Mike is a St. Cajetan alum, our four youngest kids go to school here, and my oldest, my step-daughter, is in college.
The opportunity to teach here at St. Cajetan came about at absolutely the most perfect time for my family. It is my dream job and I am thrilled to be a part of this staff!
I have always said that I love what I do and would only ever want to teach Preschoolers.
It is truly my passion.
It is the greatest job in the world!
