“I really enjoy being a part of the SFdS School & Parish family.  Since I have been teaching here, I have gotten to be a part of my students’ lives… I feel that I am doing what I was called to do, and there is much satisfaction in that.  Even though I wasn’t able to attend catholic school myself, I have been given the great opportunity to serve my students and their families, helping them shape a hopeful future for themselves and others.”
