Celebrating Catholic school educators


In its “Top Ten Reasons Catholic Schools are A+ for America,” the National Catholic Education Association cites “exceptional faculty who help students reach their highest potential.” For Catholic Schools Week Jan. 30 to Feb. 5, The Catholic Messenger asked diocesan schools and education leaders to identify some exceptional teachers dedicated to Catholic education. Below are links to stories of six such teachers, who share what motivates their ministry in profiles written by reporter Celine Klosterman.
