Mrs. Rita Picha

Mrs. Rita Picha is a graduate of Mankato State University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications. She first was a reporter at the St. Peter Herald and later at the New Prague Times. She also worked in classified advertising at The Times/Suel Printing Company before becoming a stay-at-home mom.
Mrs. Picha and her husband Steve reside in Montgomery. They have two grown daughters, Stephanie and Chelsea, alumni of Most Holy Redeemer School.

This marks Mrs. Picha’s 22nd year at Holy Redeemer, starting as an aide when Chelsea entered kindergarten. You’ll find her supervising students on the playground (some students have called her their “outdoor teacher”) and in the technology lab, library, Grade 1-2, Grade 3-4 classrooms as a para, and cafeteria entering student lunch numbers.

Outside of school, Mrs. Picha enjoys spending time with her family, reading — especially on the patio, baking and watching HGTV.
