Why did you choose to teach at a Catholic school? Or why did you choose to teach at St. John’s?

I chose to teach in a Catholic School because I want to be able to share and talk about God and our faith throughout our days of learning. I want to help students form a true relationship with Jesus that lasts throughout their lives. After all, Heaven is our goal.
