I am so excited to be working with St. Agatha's because I have always believed in the amazing education that comes from a Catholic education. St. Agatha's is where my great-grandmother, grandmother, and mother grew up and my mother and father were married here. I have noticed the caring community and amazing people that work here and I believe it is where I am meant to be! 

At St. Agatha since: 2019
