Futures Leadership Council

Posted on October 4, 2017 in Futures Leadership Council, News

The Catholic Education Foundation Futures Committee recently toured and had lunch with students at Resurrection Catholic School, the parochial school located next to the Cathedral of St. Peter in Kansas City, KS. This is the second time I’ve had the privilege of spending time at one of our CEF Schools. Both times I’ve left with a sense of pride. Pride in the Church’s mission in providing education to our youth, even with limited financial resources, and pride in the universality of our Faith.

When I found out my husband and I were expecting, I experienced unexplainable joy, along with an immediate shift in my thought process. Things I had never given much consideration in the past now seemed vital. An expecting mom’s brain is controlled chaos at best but from day one she begins to contemplate the best way to raise her child. I had to ask myself what mattered most. What are the best qualities of my husband and me? How do I pass ONLY those parts onto my child?

I am a product of Catholic education, having first attended Curé of Ars (K-8) and then Bishop Miege High School.  I have grown as a child of God with my peers and because of my Catholic education, I am continuing to live out my faith each day. After graduating from the University of Oklahoma in 2014, I knew that I would come back to Kansas City in search of a teaching job in the Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas. I was fortunate enough to teach at Curé of Ars for two years, but there was something still missing.

As I entered the back parking lot of Holy Name Catholic School, I was drawn in by the endearing sounds of laughter and children at play. It was a special day.

Three years ago, I was a senior in college beginning to look for the next path Jesus had for me. I would graduate in a few months with degrees in English and Secondary Education. My heart was torn between teaching in a Catholic school, where I could share and teach the Faith openly, and teaching at a public school, where I saw a real need for Catholic teachers to make a difference in the lives of struggling and broken families and students. I ended up signing a contract with St. Agnes, a CEF school. Teaching at a CEF school has fulfilled both of those desires in my heart.
