Why did you choose to teach at a Catholic school? Or why did you choose to teach at St. John’s?
I love teaching at a Catholic School due to the fact that I am free to talk about God, my Catholic faith, along with learning about the faith as I teach. I believe that I am fulfilling the role that Jesus has set out for me by teaching about him, the Catholic beliefs, & being able to role model those beliefs.
