Why do you choose to work in a Catholic School?

I have always felt at home in Catholic Schools.  I have taught in three different Catholic School settings and three public school settings.  The dedication of the faculty and staff in a Catholic setting has always been something I admire.  I also prefer Catholic schools because of the parents and students.  There are always so many parents who want to help and get involved in the school and be a part of their children's lives.  Catholic Schools are filled with good people all around!

 

What is your favorite thing about ASCA?

The family feeling where all are welcome.  The school is a big place with a lot of people, yet it feels like a family.  I love the kids, their parents and the staff. It's a great place to work and raise my family!
