Why Bonner & Prendergast?
I recently returned to Catholic Education after working in the public realm for many years. I strived to educate the whole child. I wanted to be able to connect with students to develop their minds and souls. Bonner & Prendie gave me the opportunity to do just that. I am excited to begin my journey here and work with an amazing school community.
