Welcome to Mrs. Pfeifle's Classroom!

About Mrs. Pfeifle


I’m Catherine Pfeifle (pronounced fife lee). I am an experienced educator, having taught in both Christian and public schools; in one teacher, multi-grade classrooms as well as in single-grade classes.  I am happy to be a part of the teaching staff at Five Oaks.

I have Bachelor’s degree in Education with a dual minor of Language Arts and Science from Andrews University.  I also have Master of Arts degree in Curriculum from La Sierra University.

As a teenager I was drafted by my Mom to be the Bible story teller for her kindergarten class at church, thus the seeds for my teaching career were planted!   “Train up a child in the way she should go…” Prov 22:6

When I’m not teaching, I enjoy kayaking, hiking, geocaching, gardening, baking, sewing, knitting, and of course, good books.  In the last few years, I have become a pretty good sheller, so I go to the beach to dig up interesting shells, not bask in the sun!  I love learning new things. 

The more I read and study the more I know that a robust education includes useful work, study of the scriptures, study of nature and rich life experiences. 

I’m looking forward to a fantastic school year!
