Joe Kuzelka - Site Supervisor

I am the Site Lead at Saint Joseph's School in West Saint Paul. I'm also an '07 alumni from STJ. My parents still live in the neighborhood. After graduating from the University of Minnesota: Twin Cities with a degree in Youth Studies, I am dedicated to community engagement and youth participatory empowerment. Currently residing in Saint Paul's Payne-Phalen neighborhood, I work with local community centers, businesses, and radio stations to encourage young people to transform the neighborhood. Young people are more willing to respect their surroundings if they are included in important transformative decisions that directly effect themselves and their world.

Jeanne Golberg - Support Para 

Hello my name is Jeanne, this is my third year at St. Joe's. In school my main interest was languages. I have studied French, German and Spanish. I did have the opportunity to study abroad in Paris. In college I found I really liked Math and Algebra. Currently, I enjoy playing a variety of games. I like doing jigsaw puzzles, crossword puzzles and cryptograms. I enjoy painting, being creative, and learning new things. I appreciate well written TV programs. I also like making homemade bread and going for walks. I have a son and daughter-in-law living in Las Vegas. They are expecting their first child in the Spring. I am very glad to be working at St. Joe's, I enjoy interacting with the children and getting to know them.
