What does the Church teach about the role of love between teacher and student in the classroom?
Saint Augustine said that there is a mutual indwelling of teacher and student such that the teacher begins to live in the student, and the student begins to live in the teacher, creating a virtuous circle in which truth travels round and round from soul to soul, almost erasing the lines between teacher and student.

Holy Child Catholic School is looking for someone to help with the custodial and maintenance services of all our school.
About Our Curriculum
We use the St. Jerome Classical Education Program which emphasizes the joys and rigors of being a thinking, acting Catholic in today's world. Our curriculum highlights that truth and beauty are good in themselves and desirable for their own sake. We seek to incorporate our students into the wisdom of two thousand years of Catholic thought, history, culture, and arts so that they might understand themselves and their world in the light of the truth and acquire the character to live happy and integrated lives in the service of God and others.
I love the classically inspired curriculum because it nurtures the whole child, mind body and soul. Prior to this I used to homeschool my kids, and it's a method I used in my own home with my children. It's nice coming into this place that values the same things that I do and that we did at home.

Wonder: A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable .
At Holy Child, Mrs. Sanchez approaches Science with wonder. She often reminds us that she teaches Mathematics not just because it's useful, but because it is beautiful.

Holy Child is the perfect place for the teacher to flourish alongside the students because of the truth we are discovering together.
