I’m a Catholic, and a high school English teacher.
For a while, the above sentence was the only thing I had in my “About” page, because I felt like it succinctly explained the source of almost all of my posts, and I didn’t know what else to say. But here is a little more:
I joined the Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) with the University of Notre Dame after graduating with a BA in English and Theology at the University of Dallas. ACE is a Masters in Education and Service program, whose mission is to renew and strengthen under-resourced Catholic schools across the United States. We’re often called the Catholic version of Teach for America, but really our mission is pretty different. If you’re interested, you can read more about it here.
I think I should add that I don’t speak officially for ACE in any capacity – this blog consists of my personal reflections on teaching in Catholic schools. I’m interested in becoming a better Christian and a better teacher, and I welcome your thoughts and appreciate your reading.
