Welcome Mrs. Ostoin

My name is Linda Ostoin and I am pleased to join the ASA staff this year! I have worked in catholic school for the past 10 years, working in various positions.

I have had the pleasure of living in many locations being a Navy wife and visited lots of countries being a flight attendant for 11 years.  I then started my education journey after my kids are born. Wanting to stay home with them and being there where off from school.

I am excited to see where this journey as the Toddler 2 teacher will take me this year!

Welcome Ms. Rosmarin

Happy 2021-2022 School Year! My name is Sue Rosmarin, and I am so excited to be the new first grade teacher at All Saints! I am coming from Immaculate Heart of Mary where I taught second grade for one year and first grade for three years. I have ten years teaching experience overall!

I am a proud graduate of St. Alphonsus, Catholic Central, and Marquette University. Catholic education is in my blood. Coming to ASA is like coming home. I grew up on Diamond Street with my 8 older brothers and sisters. My maiden name is Burch just in case that sounds familiar to anyone. My mom who just turned 91 still lives on Diamond. I don’t know who is more excited about this job, my mom or me!

I have three wonderful sons. Alex is a sophomore at Xavier University in Cincinnati. Champ is a junior at East Grand Rapids and Tommy is a freshman. They keep me very busy! We love spending time at our place in Sandy Pines in Door, Michigan during the summer where we enjoy boating, fishing and just being by the water. I am so excited to be a part of All Saints Academy. Even though I live in East Grand Rapids, I have always known that the NORTHEND is the BEST END. 😊

Aquinas College Math Buddies


For the past few years ASA has been blessed by a partnership with Aquinas College and Dr. Shari McCarty's mathematics teacher prep classes. During non-COVID years Dr. McCarty's classes would meet onsite for their class, and also spend time working with our students and teachers in classrooms. This past school year we connected Aquinas students with 3rd, 4th and 6th grade students remotely. 

This partnership is mutually beneficial in that it gives the Aquinas pre-service teachers hands-on experience teaching and creating engaging math activities while also providing our students with math interventions or enrichments. 

2021 AQ Math Student Reflection 

In addition to 1-on-1 and small group sessions with our students Aquinas students have created a series of 34d and 4th grade interactive math games for our teachers to use as centers and skills practice. 

We look forward to continued partnerships with our Aquinas Math Buddies in the coming years!

Welcome Mrs Sanchez-Harmon

My name is Alicia Sanchez-Harmon and I am so thrilled to be teaching 4s preschool this year at All Saints Academy. 

I am a former student of ASA, having been part of the second graduating class! Before it was ASA, I attended Blessed Sacrament School. I am so thankful for everything my catholic education gave me. I acquired my love for teaching through the amazing teachers I have had. Shoutout to Mrs. Anderson & Mrs. Livingston! 

I am so blessed to be able to continue my teaching journey at the school that has given me so much.
