Today's Teacher Tuesday is Ramona Froeschl Katsadas. She teaches a variety of Career Tech classes including Business Information Applications, Money Matters, Mapping Your Future, Principles of Business Marketing and Finance, Game Programming & Design, and Mobile App Development. She also works with students who are taking courses through Credit Recovery.
Mrs. Katsadas has been a part of Venture High School for the past 28 years after interviewing with Mr. Lonny Porter in 1993. She shares that as he explained about the mastery concept that Venture offered, she knew she had found her life long position. Mrs. Katsadas feels that every child can learn, but that they may need personalized plans to ensure that learning happens. She loved that Venture offered the latitude for students to work at their pace in all classes and employed teachers with a passion for helping the students who needed this system the most.
Outside of school, Mrs. Katsadas enjoys a close relationship with her Mom, who she calls one of her closest friends. In addition, she and Tom, her husband of 13 years, have two fur babies, Bazinga (a Border Collie mix) and Argo (a Shepard mix). In her free time, Mrs. Katsadas loves to plan and take fantastic long vacations on a budget, including places around the USA and Europe (where she typically ends up spending time in Greece.)
Mrs. Katsadas's decades of Venture knowledge is an irreplaceable asset to our faculty, staff, and students. Thank you for all you do to make Venture High School such a benefit to our community! ... See MoreSee Less
