4th Grade


Hey there! My name is Mary Gondringer. The 2023-2024 school year is my second year teaching fourth grade at MOL and tenth year teaching overall. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree from the College of St. Benedict, and a few years later, obtained my Master’s Degree in English: Rhetoric and Writing from St. Cloud State University. I am truly blessed to be part of the MOL team! After spending the majority of my career in the public education system teaching English to middle school, high school, and college students, I heard God calling me to the Catholic school. I enjoy sharing my faith with my students and helping them become the best version of themselves. 


When I’m not teaching, you’ll most likely find me behind a camera, photographing mostly engagements and weddings, and the occasional family or senior. If I don’t have a camera in my hand, I’ll be cruising around America with my husband, Andrew, learning anything and everything I can about different parts of our country. As of July 2023, I have visited every state capitol in the lower 48 states! Ask me about my favorites! As my students know, I love to share the knowledge I’ve gained through my traveling.
