“We cannot separate our faith from who we are, what we learn, and how we serve. It is integral! In a good Catholic school like ours, the faith is lived in everything we do. I love that I can openly pray for and with my students. I can remind them that my goal for them is more than just an A on a math test…it is that they become SAINTS!”

“The part I love most about teaching is simply having a conversation with my students, listening to what they have to say, and making a connection with them that lasts until graduation.”
