Personal Quote

It is an honor and privilege to share my faith and talents with the children of St. Joseph School. I am so very blessed to have had the gift of a Catholic education.  This foundation is my inspiration for teaching in a Catholic school. I consider teaching at St. Joseph School a true blessing.
