Mariah Boland is the preschool teacher for the youngest children who attend our school. It is her first-year teaching and she is ecstatic to join the St. Gertrude family.

Mariah completed her associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education at East Central College in 2019. While she was completing her associates, she was a SKIP employee and a counselor at St. Gertrude Summer Camp. She is continuing her education at Central Methodist University, where she will obtain a Bachelor’s degree in education. Mariah has always had a passion for working with children and cannot wait to see what her time at St. Gertrude will bring her.

Mariah will be changing her last name this May, as she marries the love of her life, Michael Boland. Together, they enjoy hiking, traveling and spending time with their families. In the mix of all the commotion in their lives, they find plenty of time to spend with their sweet fur baby, Anna.

Please do not hesitate to ask Mariah any questions you may have! In fact, she would enjoy becoming familiar with new faces, so feel free to say hi!
