My name is Laura Gryfinski. I am a lifelong parishioner of St. Francis Borgia, and I attended SFB from K-8. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Northeastern Illinois University having majored in both Elementary Education and Communication, Media, and Theatre. I had been a Teacher’s Aide at Sts. Faith, Hope, and Charity in Wilmette for one year prior to my coming home to SFB School where I am now teaching First Grade. I am also a Religious Ed teacher, a Eucharistic Minister and Co-Director of SFB’s Eighth Grade Play, Co-Moderator for SFB’s Drama Club, Beta Club, Kid’s Fun Club and Co-Pageant Director for our annual All-School Christmas Pageant Program. I am thankful for the Catholic education I received; and know that as a Catholic school teacher I will do my best to nurture the seeds of faith which you, as parents, have sown. I am very proud to be part of this parish and school where SFB pride is everywhere!
