About Principal Kimberly Doyle

Kim Doyle has been the principal of St. Wenceslaus Catholic School for the past ten years. She is an experienced school educator working in both Catholic and public schools as a teacher. She has taught preschool to college level students. Kim has been a Catholic school principal for most of her career before moving back home to St. Wenceslaus as our current school leader. Kim grew up in New Prague and is a graduate of St. Wenceslaus Catholic School. Kim has traveled to many areas of the world, but her most rewarding travels were several trips to Russia to pick up her two daughters. Kim dedicates her life to her daughters enjoying the time they share with each other traveling, camping, and with their involvement in dance and gymnastics events.

Kim is truly compassionate about her mission in Catholic Education. She believes that educating the heart and soul of our children is critical in bringing them closer to God. She works to make the faith base they receive while in our Catholic School one that will carry them into a lifetime of building their relationship with God and with others. The strong academic program the students of St. Wenceslaus School receive coupled with deep faith beliefs and practices will make the SWS students confident and capable learners and leaders.

About Joan May

Joan’s journey at St. Wenceslaus began when she answered the call to a part time technology position when her daughter started her SWS journey.  Joan is now here full time, leading and managing our 1 to 1 program. She teaches and supports staff and students in the use and care of digital devices, and serves as the lead testing coordinator. Joan has developed relationships with others in the technology field for support. The C-STEM program at St. Wenceslaus fits well with Joan’s passion of life long learning. Finding, learning and adopting new technology tools in this ever-changing field is a challenge. Modeling safe and effective usage of the tools is a continued goal. Life with this SWS family is a treasure.

About Leah Zvanovec

Leah started with a degree in Business and Marketing with an Art minor. She spent many summers teaching swimming lessons at the New Prague Pool and after working for a short time in business, she realized that working with kids was where she needed to be. Leah returned to school at Mankato State University to obtain a degree in teaching.  She started her career at the New Prague Middle School teaching keyboarding and art, then moving to the High School where she taught Business Education. When her oldest child started school at St. Wenceslaus, she was excited to be able to teach here and to be a part of the school both as a parent and educator. Leah is still in that position, 4 kids and 15 years later!
