I am a product of a parochial education, graduating from St. Thomas Aquinas HS in 1965. I returned to teach Biology, Physics, and a number of other science courses from 1973-1984. I also served as Athletic Director and Assistant Principal. After 26 years in the public sector and a brief stint as a retiree, I returned to Catholic Education two years ago. The community and climate of St. Pat’s convinced me to return. I have found the infusion of a religious experience into the daily routine of school is extremely healthy for students and teachers. The teachings of Jesus manifests itself in the daily work we do. It provides guidance, direction, and a climate that allows for us to do exceptional things here at St. Pats.
