Our dedicated, hard-working team of faculty and staff makes St. Vincent de Paul School and Preschool what it is today. The faculty has over 200 years of combined teaching experience. Seventy-five percent of our graduates continue to play high school sports and eight out of ten of our graduates attend college. We have been honored as a “Buckeye Best School” award and grant recipient since 2003, we are listed in the Global Directory of Who’s Who, and we are accredited by the state of Ohio through the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.
Preschool Director and Teacher
Mrs. Gilardi, from Russia, Ohio, has been teaching at St. Vincent since 1966. She has recently stepped out of the classroom but continues the role of Preschool Director. She obtained her teaching degree from Bowling Green State University and has been involved with St. Vincent, first as a parent, then as a classroom aide, and finally as a teacher and director. She has three grown children, all of whom have gone to St. Vincent de Paul. Her favorite part of preschool is seeing how independent and “grown up” the students become over the course of the year. She enjoys travelling and I looking forward to the birth of her first grandchild in 2016.
