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

Teaching is such an important profession and I’m so grateful to see the curiosity and wonder of students. I knew I wanted to teach at a Catholic School because I wanted to teach at a school that stood out for a reason, and that reason is God. I get to be part of a community bounded by faith and become a better version of myself while doing something I love.
