Welcome to the sixth grade with Sister Jane!  I so look forward to working with you for the 2017-2018 scholastic year.  I come to you with a wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of education.  I have taught at or been principal of 8 different schools in the Los Angeles Archdiocese, and I was the founding principal of St. Julie Primary Boarding School in rural Uganda, Africa.  This year marks my thirteenth here at St. Dominic School.  I have a Master's Degree in the Science of Education, and  California Life credentials in teaching and in administration.  I am a member of the religious congregation, the Sisters of Notre Dame, and I live right across the street from the school!

If you need to contact me, you may do so at   sisterjane@stdominicla.us   I check this e-mail before and after school Monday-Friday.
