What are a couple unique qualities/skills about you?
What are some personal items the families might like to know?
Who is your favorite Saint and why?
I have many favorite saints. Two of them are: St Martin de Porres and blessed Margaret of Castellp. Maybe because they were so humble and generous hearted. Martin was a Mulato in Lima and so, often neglected and/or abused. Margaret was misshapen and disfigured from birth and was never loved by her parents who when she was about 18, abandoned her in a church in a city strange to her. Neither of them stopped loving those who mistreated them.
What is your favorite Bible or Saint quote?
What is your favorite prayer and why?
I think the OUR FATHER is my favorite prayer because it is Jesus' words, so he prays it with us, or we can pray it with Him.
Why did you choose to teach at a Catholic school? Or why did you choose to teach at St. John’s?
Anything else you want to add?
