Why a Catholic Education Matters
I believe that choice in education is important. We choose for our children the educational opportunities that will enrich them most. Catholic Education nurtures the whole child, mind, body and spirit. Musically, we have many great opportunities at St. Joseph School for our children. I love being able to teach songs of Faith to the children, and help them connect their faith to their everyday life.
