Wauwatosa Catholic will be the first Catholic International Baccalaureate K3 to 8th grade school in this area. It is a new school opening in the fall of 2011, sponsored by St. Pius X and St. Bernard Parishes. This blog will update the community on its newest school. Visit www.wauwatosacatholic.org for more information.
Wauwatosa Catholic School is proud to introduce new faculty for the upcoming 2011-2012 school year to the community. Upcoming blogs, including today's, will showcase the talented staff that Principal Julia D'Amato has assembled. She refers to these fine teachers and support staff as her "dream team." What an exciting time to be a teacher or student in a brand new school!
Today, we bring you the first Eighth Grade teacher for Wauwatosa Catholic School: Mr. Lance Taylor, graduate of The University of Wisconsin Milwaukee.
"St. Francis of Assisi once said, “Preach the Gospel at all times - - if necessary, use words”; I try to follow his example. The Lord has been good to me, so in return, I share His goodness with all of those around me - - I smile often.
I’ve worked as a Christian Formation Coordinator for seven years in Pewaukee. As a first-year teacher, I feel well prepared, confident, and exuberant going into the 2011-2012 school year. If you ever want to discuss reading and writing, the Milwaukee Brewers, or anything regarding music, please stop on by; my door is always open.
My goal as an educator is to foster the development of my students in their faith and to strive to assimilate and accommodate new knowledge. My students shall become learners - - not memorizers.
Through Language Arts, I strive to exhibit and stretch the possibilities of literacy, empowering my students to become critical thinkers and active members of their local, global, and faith community.
Through prayer and faith-filled discussion, students will discover that there is a lot more good than bad in their world as well as recognize the many gifts God has given us. I am thrilled to teach, inspire, mentor, and make a difference at Wauwatosa Catholic."
