About our Teachers | Dedication and Commitment

Teachers at St. Michael Catholic School understand that being a successful teacher means being able to integrate their education, work, life with faith. A St. Michael education provides our students with a comprehensive, quality education delivered within a caring environment and founded on the teachings of our Catholic faith. As a teacher at St. Michael School, it is essential that you have an understanding of, and commitment to, the Mission of the Catholic church, but that you also enjoy working with children and helping them learn and grow.

At the heart of our teacher's success is their commitment to Catholic values and the provision of quality education in a supportive and caring environment. Our staff come from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds. They work in many varied roles but with the common aim of the provision of a quality, Catholic education for all our students. Below we share with your their educational background, as well as the length of time they have been a part of the St. Michael family. We look forward to meeting you!

About our Specials | Creativity and Inspiration

At St. Michael Catholic School, we see students as more than just a seat in a classroom increasingly focused on simple test-based academics. We aim to inspire both minds and spirits, both in and out of the classroom, as well as help students grow in an environment enhanced by strong moral values like kindness, generosity and hospitality. We do this by including our Catholic tradition in our everyday classes, as well as exposing our students to numerous opportunities to be creative, through art, music and physical education.

Our main goal at all times is providing students with a rigorous, well-rounded education – and everything we do is enhanced by our moral traditions, the person of Jesus and the Catholic faith.
