Why a Catholic Education Matters
As I continue to grow in my own faith, I find it very powerful to hear first graders understand and experience how their prayers impact them and others. It is also amazing to hear them pray for others around the world and to show compassion for others who are suffering on a personal and global level.
I had been looking for a full-time teaching position when my father told me about the ad at St. Joseph School. He graduated from St. Joseph School and was a life long member of St. Joseph Church. I applied the next day, was interviewed and offered the position. That December my Dad died, but his love and lessons about Jesus Christ continue to guide me on this journey. I appreciate and treasure my job as I know how important God's mission is to our world. I've had many experiences through my family and the children at St. Joseph School which confirm in my mind and spirit that this is where God wants me to continue this mission.
