Mrs. Gaca's Classroom

Welcome to 7th and 8th Grade ELA!


Welcome to 8th Grade English Language Arts! My name is Cheryl Gaca, and I am thrilled to be a part of Bishop McNamara Catholic School.

I graduated from Eastern Illinois University in 1991 with a B.S.Ed. including a Language Arts endorsement. I am happily married to my husband, Joe, and we have two children--Andrew and Ashley. Andrew is currently serving in the United States Air Force, and Ashley attends Northern Illinois University.

Prior to accepting the role as an 8th Grade ELA teacher here at BMCS, I taught junior high ELA at the former Maternity BVM School for over 10 years. I am looking forward to meeting each of you! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email me at . Let's make this a fantastic school year! Go Irish!!


Students are HAPPY to learn at BMCS!
