Teacher Spotlight
Catharena Rydell
Two Year Old Class Aide

This week we feature our magnificent aide, Catharena (Miss Cat). We were blessed to have this wonderful lady join our team this November and we’re not sure how we ever survived without her! She and Mrs. Lisa make a great team as they teach God’s Word to our friends in the Two year old class. Mrs. Cat has worked with children many years, including teaching the two year old class previously, right here at FUMC several years ago for two school years. She worked for six years in Hearne ISD in the Behavioral Department for the district’s elementary schools, and has worked caring for the elderly for the past eight years. She and her husband, Lance, who is a teacher at Taylor Middle School, have been married 22 years and they attend Hutto Lutheran Church, where Cat has been a Sunday School teacher for many years. They have two daughters, one finishing her first year of college and one in fifth grade. We are so very happy that Cat chose to become part of our family at FUMC! She is such a blessing to the children, families, and teachers here and we love her dearly! Thank you, Mrs. Cat, for making our days so much brighter!
