What do you like about St. Egbert?
“I love teaching at St. Egbert School.  The sense of family at the school and the promotion of strong educational and Catholic practices are just a few of the traits and practices that set our school on the path to success. Being able to share my Catholic faith, model and discuss catechism, and include values and faith practices with the students is an uplifting and life-affirming experience.”
