Congratulations to Mary Davis, a 2021 Teacher of the Year Honoree

Educator of the Year – Special Education and Under Served 

Funded by the Maginn Family Foundation 

Mary Davis, Resource Teacher, Sts. Peter and Paul School, Omaha 

Mary supports classroom instruction for K-3 students and seeks out additional professional development or learns a new intervention strategy so she can meet the needs of an individual student. She has additional responsibility as a mentor to teachers.

Mary also faithfully mentors the students, many of whom are in America for the first time.

This is Mary’s eighth year at Sts. Peter and Paul. She also taught in East St. Louis, Illinois and in Okinawa, Japan for the Department of Defense schools. She has a master’s in K-8 education and an endorsement in English as a Second Language, both from Doane College.  

 “There are innumerable students at our school who know how to read, succeed at school, get along with their peers or know that they are loved as a child of God simply because Mrs. Davis has been a part of their lives,” said Principal Andrew Bauer.  

Mary and her husband, Tony, have four children: Lindsey Davis, Sr. Kara Davis, Fr. Frassati Davis and Fr. Anthony Davis. The couple spends their free time traveling to see their children who live across the country. She also enjoys gardening and reading. 


Mary Davis is part of a larger group of educators the Archdiocese of Omaha honors each year. The annual event helps us recognize and reward the impact of our local educators, celebrate Catholic education and raise important scholarship dollars for tuition assistance. 

Please join us for this year’s Archbishop’s Dinner for Education on September 23
