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.

Mrs. Linda Jelinek - ELA - Sixth, Seventh & Eighth Grade

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!

This year marks my fifth year of teaching. This will be my first year at Divine Savior. Prior to coming to Divine Savior I was an English as a Second Language teacher in the Fond du Lac school district. I received my Elementary Education degree from Lakeland College in 2013.

We love to hang out with our friends and family and watch the Packers.

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!
