Recently, Father Matthew posed a question to our teachers and staff. He asked, "Why do you choose to work at St. Patrick? Why do you love working for a Catholic school?" Let's be honest, no one chooses to work at a Catholic school for the money. So what is it? What draws our teachers and staff to our school? What keeps them here year after year?
After much reflection, our teachers shared with us the reasons why they choose to work at a Catholic school, and I am going to share some of those reasons with you over the next few weeks!
One teacher shared: "I love working at St. Patrick, because EVERY student has value." The teacher went on to say that at many schools, the most problematic students or the higher achieving students get the attention, but at St. Patrick, we make sure that EVERY student has value and feels valued!
This is the most important thing - making sure that every child in our building feels valued and feels worthy of that value, too! One of the many reasons why we love our #catholicschool!
