Sadie McCaulley


“Teaching secondary level mathematics intrigues me because I love learning math and engaging with difficult problems. More importantly, teaching is a way that I can impact the future directly by showing students how mathematics is a window into the mind of the Creator through the order of the universe. I hope to take opportunities to mentor students through athletics and in the classroom; and help them to discover what God is calling them to next.”

St. Ambrose Academy welcomes Sadie McCaulley to our faculty as a math teacher!

A native of McFarland, Sadie returns to the Madison area after earning her bachelor’s degree at the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota with majors in mathematics, secondary (5-12) education, and Catholic Studies and a minor in mathematical statistics.

After attending public school in McFarland through 12th grade, “St. Thomas ended up being a perfect place to combine my passions and discover my deeper vocation for being a teacher and entering Catholic education.” She also looks forward to entering into the vocation of marriage in June 2025 to her high school sweetheart, Eli.

As a sophomore in high school, Sadie knew she wanted to become a teacher. “My choice to enter education has been inspired by the deep and impactful relationships with my middle and high school teachers. I am excited to impact lives in similar ways,” she said.

Her faith has been likewise impacted by her involvement in Love Begins Here (LBH) local mission trips throughout middle and high school. As of 2023, Sadie completed her 8th summer in LBH, and was a Core Team Member. She also spent a summer serving at St. Therese’s Camp in Alaska and has enjoyed volunteering with youth events like Frassati Fest over breaks during college. In her estimation, “The Diocese of Madison is truly the best place to be a young Catholic!”

In addition to actively cultivating a life of faith, Sadie’s hobbies include long-distance running (including half and full marathons), hiking and camping, playing violin, and many arts and crafts including cross stitching, bullet journaling, painting, and more!

She’s fascinated by the connections between mathematics, astronomy, and art and loves books in the ‘math memoirs’ genre, which highlight the beauty of mathematics all around us. If she could spend a week doing whatever she wanted, Sadie “would ideally travel to Norway in the summertime for the midnight sun and breathtaking hikes.”

Sadie looks forward to being a part of the St. Ambrose community, saying “I am so impressed by the deep care for the whole person that the staff at St. Ambrose cultivate. The families and alumni I know from St. Ambrose are some of the best people I know and I can’t wait to be surrounded by such vibrant, faithful, and joyful community in and outside of school.” 

Welcome, Sadie!
