Since 1977, this has been my home away from home. I have had the joy of meeting wonderful and supportive people who continue to make a difference in my life. I once brought my niece over to the convent and school on the weekend when she was about four years old, and this is the question she asked’ “does Jesus live here?” She is now 39 years old and just attended the 160th Anniversary Gala with my entire family (from California and Virginia) and me; so the answer is still the same: “Yes, Janine, Jesus does certainly live here!” This family spirit continues to nurture these young ladies and encourage them to “march on to victory.”

I am very grateful to be working at my alma mater. The four years I spent here were some of the greatest in my life. I am looking forward to making many new memories along the way and inspiring my students the same way the teachers here have positively influenced me
