What will you learn?

I am happy to be working for a Catholic School because we are able to teach the whole child and use Jesus as a role model for good character. Learning is much more than just what we academically teach. It's about discovering how to be a caring human being, how to work together, and how to give service to others. I love that I can talk about our faith in the classroom throughout every day lessons.
