As the Principal of Blessed Trinity Academy, I would like to welcome you to our blog, Catholic School Classrooms At Work. We want to share with you about the benefits of attending a Catholic school in this ever-changing world. This is a place where traditions and innovative curriculum are integrated into a faith-based education. Academic standards are high, as well as a value placed on respect for and service to others.
I have been an educational leader for over 20 years and just completed my first year as a Catholic school principal. This opportunity has given me a chance to reflect on how my own Catholic school experiences have influenced my journey in teaching and leading over the past 20 years. My Catholic teachers and teachings influenced my work within school communities. Creating this environment is intentional—creating joy in learning, with the gratitude of God and the teachings of Jesus. Creating space for student voice in learning and the celebration of Catholic traditions. And creating opportunities for students to apply the teachings of Christ in their daily life—in communion with each other and reaching out to assist and advocate for those in need.
We want to share with the greater Pittsburgh community about our passionate and dedicated teachers, who not only facilitate learning to meet the needs of the whole child, but also are strong role models, who live out their Catholic values in their everyday actions.
We will talk about what it means to be a part of a faith-based school and how we create a sense of community. Our families engage in athletics, fellowship, friendship, and service.
We want interested families to know that affording Catholic education is within reach.
We are a place where kids thrive! We respect the individuality of each child while allowing them to develop their God-given talents.
