"I have been a teacher at SJB for 25 years, most of that time in first grade. The most amazing thing about SJB is that we strive to educate the entire child--socially, emotionally, spiritually, and academically. My greatest joy to date was when a student with academic challenges came to me to tell me that she was all grown up, learning to make good choices, happy, and thankful for her time at St. John Berchmans!"
