May 1 is the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. In all his ordinariness, St. Joseph embodies the religious spirit for which all Christians long—integrity, fortitude, fidelity, and sanctity. In living out his foreboding vocation of being the husband of Mary and the foster father of the Messiah, St. Joseph remained unwavering in his loyalty, faithful to his mission, and unselfishly open to the will of God. St. Joseph did this not out of blind obedience or ignorance; he did it simply out of love.
Art teacher Kevin Baer believes everyone has the capacity to be creative and make art. He says everyone is an artist; maybe they just don’t know it yet. For a recent assignment, 5th and 7th graders created posters to hang in their windows to express positive messages of solidarity in these difficult times.
World geography teacher Justin Toepfer says he sees himself as being someone who can adapt his teaching style to his students. "It’s my responsibility to provide an environment that allows our students to grow as learners as well as become more educated and active citizens."
Holy Cross Band Director Cameron Mayfield says a huge part of what he does is teaching students to love music as much as he does.
Primary music teacher and first grade assistant Marisa Sorrentino believes that experience is the best teacher, and that every student deserves an opportunity to develop and display their talent.
High school math teacher Molly Whittington inspires enthusiasm in her students by encouraging questions and discussion, and she says the best part of her job is getting to experience moments of revelation with her students.
