Teachers Are the Fire

Those who answer the call of teaching and school work are special people. To be a positive light in a child's life is the ultimate goal for many teachers and staff at St. John's. The faculty plays a central role in the life of an independent school. Our teachers and staff are the lifeblood of the St. John's Parish Day School community and take a front-seat in decisions related to curriculum and daily life. They ARE the St. John's FIRE!
