Sister Mary Ann Dice
Sister Mary Ann Dice is a member of Mount St. Scholastica in Atchison, Kansas.
I graduated with an undergraduate degree in Education from the Mount and have a Masters of Arts in Teaching from the Webster University Branch in Kansas City. I grew up in Lenexa, Kansas. My parents were Bertha and Fred Dice, and I was the youngest of three children. My sister is Cynthia and brother is Fred Jr. I attended elementary school at Holy Trinity School in Lenexa and St. Joseph High School in Shawnee, both taught by the Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica.
I taught 47 years from 1959-2006. In teaching I taught every grade throughout the years, but mainly in the primary grades. I really enjoyed children who loved to read. After retiring from teaching I have been Supervisor of the Laundry at the Monastery. In these later years at home here in the monastery I have enjoyed working with the lay employees in the laundry and being able to live the daily routine of prayers and liturgies.
