Mrs. Meghann Bauer , Principal
My name is Meghann Bauer and I am blessed as the EAS teacher at Notre Dame. I am a graduate of St. Basil’s Elementary School and St. Patrick-St. Vincent High School. I completed my undergraduate study at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Sacramento State in Child Development. I then went onto to receive my teaching credential and Masters degree in Elementary Education from Chapman University. I have taught in both public and private schools in positions ranging from classroom teacher, reading specialist, mentor teacher, and Education Achievement Specialist. Outside of school, I spend all my free time with my husband, Jason, and twin boys, Matthew and William. I enjoy camping, running, cooking, and reading. I am honored to be both a parent and teacher of the NDS community.
Mrs. Kate Smith , Vice Principal/Educational Achievement Specialist (EAS)
My name is Kate Smith and I am honored to be the 3rd grade teacher here at Notre Dame. As a parochial student myself I find such depth and excitement in the opportunities that Notre Dame offers. I received my Bachelors degree from Sacramento State in 2000. I furthered my education by attending National University where I received both my Multiple Subject Credential and my Master’s degree in Cross Cultural Education. I taught in the public school sector for almost 5 years before taking a leave of absence to raise my children. During that time I remained in the field by substitute teaching in the Vacaville Unified School District. In my free time I spend it revolving around my three children (Ty, Chase, and Reese). As graduates and current student’s at Notre Dame themselves, I have enjoyed seeing how being a student here is changing and molding their futures. I am extremely passionate about education and believe all children can succeed in becoming life long learners in faith and education.
