Why Catholic Education : I can share my love of teaching with my students while instilling a love of God and catholic faith. I enjoy teaching at a Catholic school because I love the fact that its teaching is based on a special understanding of who we are. Education in a Catholic school is based on the belief that God made each one of us with all our gifts, talents, and abilities. I believe that all children have the ability to learn with motivation and persistence.
Why Saint Raphael School : Saint Raphael’s School emphasizes a positive attitude to children that we are all created in the image of God – on a belief that God gave us life to be embraced and enjoyed – on a belief that people are essentially good – on a belief that God created us, and that with God’s help we can improve our own and others’ lives. I am proud to work in a Catholic school because our school, Saint  Raphael’s, presents a vision of hope for our students, and for our community.
