From The Heart
Making a Difference in the Lives of Students
Teaching in a Catholic school is often referred to as a vocation – a calling to become part of something of great significance; in this case, to share in the Church’s mission. In their own way, teachers in Catholic schools share in the work of Jesus to reach out to others and spread the good news about life and its purpose.

“Educating is an act of love; It is like giving life.” – Pope Francis
Life is like a roller coaster. It goes up and is great and goes down is scary/touch. During those times I do a lot of “brain” singing of “Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God has done…” It always helps me to refocus on all the good God has blessed me with.
Teaching is never boring, some days you will instill life lessons in the generation that will run the nation, other days you remind them to not lick walls or that your classroom is not TikTok rehearsal space. It is called balance.
You don’t inspire others by being perfect. You inspire them by how you deal with your imperfections.
Mary conceived without sin pray for us who recourse to thee.
