The Saints Scoop
St. Louis Catholic High School
- Put forth effort. Teachers will go the extra mile if a student will reach out and ask for help. Yes, it can be embarrassing, but do it anyway. Email the the teacher (even on late assignments). We are here to support and guide them into adulthood.
- Organization is key. Students should be able to explain what and where their assignments are. Once again, ask for help if unsure. Ask a classmate or upperclassman.
- Make a weekly plan, not day by day. Block schedules are challenging for procrastinators. Teaching students to look at the entire week (including after school activities) is a skill that will help them after high school.
- Grades are important but they are not a child's worth. A nice reminder for us all.

What do you like the best about teaching theology at SLC? Teaching students what the Church teaches is often challenging as the world/society sometime is louder than the voice of the Church. Yet, I plant the seeds and pray that they take root and grow. Over my teaching career I have seen the fruit of those seed in many students and it is truly a blessing to see their spiritual growth and the path of their life choices.

What do you like the best about teaching theology at SLC? I really like that I don't 'fit the mold' (a coach in the Religion Dept). Also I came into my faith by sharing it and having others share theirs, and now I'm blessed to get to do that every day in class. Lastly it's another aspect that makes this school so great and I'm so glad I get to be a part of it.
