Why Bonner & Prendergast
Prendie was an arch-rival of Notre Dame when I was a student there. Although I did not choose Prendie, I thoroughly enjoyed the 28 years that I have taught there. This year is a new adventure. I had taught co-ed in a high school in North Arlington, NJ before coming to Prendie, so it has not been a big adjustment to me. I am enjoying the co-ed venue.
