World-Class Faculty and Staff
Our faculty and staff are knowledgeable and passionate about their disciplines and equally passionate about engaging students in important learning both inside and outside the classroom. Our teachers work with bright and enthusiastic students, in an outstanding facility, share a commitment to best-practice pedagogy, and have the opportunity to apply the most current research in effective teaching and learning—all while collaborating closely across grade levels and disciplines. Nearly half of the school’s current faculty have spent more than a decade teaching here, which speaks to how much people love beign a part of our Eastside Catholic community.
I'm grateful to work in a warm, supportive, and collaborative school environment. I learn so much from my colleagues and their excellence pushes me to be the best teacher I can be for my students. My students bring me joy every day, and it’s incredibly rewarding to work with them to grow and learn throughout the year. Jessica Rice, NBCT
