About Ms. Natasha Pajda

My name is Natasha Pajda and I will be teaching 5th and 6th grade this year. I’m so excited to be joining the St. Patrick family!


I have attended Catholic schools my entire life and graduated from John Paul II High School (second graduating class). I earned my Bachelor’s degree in Secondary Religious Education from St. Edward’s University and my Master’s degree in Catholic School Leadership from St. Louis University. This will be my eight year teaching.


In-between my degrees, I was blessed to be able to do a year of service with the Vincentian Mission Corp in St. Louis, MO. During that time, I volunteered at a homeless pregnant women’s shelter called Our Lady’s Inn. St. Louis has some of the best food...toasted ravioli, provel cheese, and gooey butter cake.


I love to read, listen/watch Broadway shows, and talk about anything Disney. My favorite hobbies include building puzzles (especially the 3D ones) and traveling. I have been blessed to travel on two life changing pilgrimages; one to Italy and one to Poland.  I learned a lot about my Catholic faith and I can’t wait to share my experiences with your children.
