Our Faculty

Click below on the profile links to learn more about our stellar faculty. You will discover that they are engaged in all three strands of our work – co-curricular, academic and spiritual – showing their commitment to strive towards the Magis – the more. 

They support the Jesuit philosophy of cura personalis and cura communis, caring for the individual and maintaining positive, respectful relationships with all members of the community. They also support Jesuit commitment to a faith that does justice.

They meet the needs of students of differing backgrounds and abilities and encouraging students to be risk-takers who learn from their mistakes. They also model and encourage an enthusiastic desire for lifelong learning.

They are also well prepared and engage in ongoing professional development. Nearly 100 hold masters degrees, and another five have earned their doctoral degrees.

Other Information

I grew up in Marin County and graduated from SI in 2003, participating in choir, water polo, swimming, student government, Block Club, Insignis, and various other clubs. I continued on to study Anthropology and Preprofessional Studies (Premedicine) at the University of Notre Dame, where I continued to play water polo, sing, and get involved in student government. Following graduation, I was a full-time volunteer with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps: Northwest for two years. The first was spent in Omak, WA, teaching at a K-9 school on an Indian reservation and the second in Portland, OR, working at the Recuperative Care Program for homeless men and women recovering after hospital discharge. Following those two years of service, I returned home to the Bay Area and to SI as a coach and teacher.
