What do you love most about teaching at Valle Catholic?
“I love that I get to talk about Jesus all day long. In my years in the public schools, we did not talk about religion. Religion is such an important part of my life, it is really hard not to talk about it. The students are so enthusiastic to learn about Jesus and his love for them!”

To our students …
“You matter to me. You matter to the whole school. You are a part of Jesus’ body of the Church. Each of us has our own gifts that are a part of Jesus’ mission. Without you, we would be missing part of our body! You matter! And always remember: “I love you so much!” (This is a song we sing at the end of every day!)”
