A Welcome Message from our Principal
Living up to the wonderful academic reputation that Loretto Academy has enjoyed for the past 95 years is an exciting challenge that I am looking forward to. Loretto Academy has had a noticeable presence in our community, and as I get ready to enter into its hallways and classrooms, I understand the commitment as I begin to work with the Loretto community to continue its legacy.
The vision that the Sisters of Loretto had for educating young women is alive and well. The women in my family have a tradition of attending Loretto Academy starting in the 1940s and continuing with the youngest, who graduated in May of 2017.
I have been closely connected to Catholic schools most of my life. I was a student in Catholic elementary, middle, high school and university schools. I have also had the opportunity to work for public schools for 28 years as a teacher, professional development specialist, and as an administrator in elementary and secondary settings. I anticipate the opportunity to strengthen our community by finding a good balance from my experience as an educator.
July 1, 2017 marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life and a new chapter in the working relationship that will emerge as I work with students, families, and the faculty & staff that make Loretto Academy an experience for all that have chosen it. The core values of Community, Faith, Justice, and Respect will be the base for everything that we do. I look forward to meeting each and every one of you as the Loretto journey continues and I join in on the experience.
