Why do you want to teach at St. Egbert?

“My three children received a Catholic education. The supportive community between staff and family at St. Egbert is vibrant and essential to the academic success of each student. I am excited to teach at a school with experienced educators who combine the 21st century learning with faith-based values. St. Egbert feels like home to me, and I am honored to be a part of each child’s academic and individual success.”
