Amalia Kline  Honduran by birth and American by choice, I met my wonderful husband of 30 years while I was teaching and coaching elementary students in my home country.  We are the proud parents of a soon to be doctor.  I hold an elementary teaching license from the Universidad Pedagogica de Honduras as well as a middle and high school licenses from IPFW.  I love to spend time with family and friends, to travel, and to cook new and old recipes for whoever is willing to try some national and international dishes!

Michel Holland
Michel Holland I grew up in Wisconsin and graduated summa cum laude from the University of Wisconsin with a B.A. in religious studies, French, with a vocal performance minor. I was admitted to graduate studies at St. Norbert College prior to completing my undergrad because of my academic record.  I earned a master’s in theology and finished my seminary studies in 2007, at which point I was ordained a Catholic priest.  I have taught middle school, high school and college level courses and I have served as assistant rector at a Catholic seminary, archdiocesan vocations director, and as Prior Provincial for the North American Independent Benedictines.  In addition to teaching full time, I am also pastor of two parishes: Holy Redeemer Catholic Community, and Grace St. John’s United Church of Christ.  Since I am apparently the first Catholic priest to serve as a Protestant pastor, I try to live the values I try to instill in my students: to live outside the boxes that confine and divide us and to work for harmony and unity. Education is the pathway to peace. I continue to teach in a public school setting because I believe wholeheartedly in the moral purpose and vision of Fort Wayne Community Schools
