Welcome to St. Anthony Elementary School! 

I am proud to serve the students, staff, and families of this school as the principal.  I have been in education for twenty-eight years and have provided leadership at both the elementary and high school levels for seventeen years.  In addition to administration, I taught middle school students for ten years and and high school students for one year.  My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education and Psychology, a Master's Degree in Educational Leadership, an Educational Specialist Degree in Educational Leadership and K-12 principal licensure.
 
My goal is that each day every child will learn, be happy, supported, and grow in knowledge that every child of God is a special gift.  As a Catholic school leader, I am dedicated to support and promote the same Catholic values that parents live and want for their children.
 
Please feel free to visit our school or contact me anytime at shelly.bauer@nuacs.com or (507)354-2928.
