In case our current families didn’t get a chance to watch the last day of school wrap-up video from Mrs. Zorger (and to inform our new SJS families as well), we are excited to announce that Mrs. Jessica Fitzgerald has accepted the position of Pre-Kindergarten Director/4-Year-Old Program Teacher here at Saint James School for the upcoming school year. Mrs. Fitzgerald has taught 1st grade at Saint James for the past 5 years and prior to that, served as the head teacher for another preschool program in town.
Mrs. Fitzgerald is a graduate of Assumption Elementary/Middle School, East Catholic High School, and the University of Connecticut – where she received her degree in Human Development and Family Studies with a specialization in Early Childhood Development and Education. Mrs. Fitzgerald also holds a Master’s of Education Degree from the University of Hartford and is certified through the State of Connecticut to teach Integrated Early Childhood in addition to the lower Elementary Grades. Please join us on congratulating Mrs. Fitzgerald on her new role of working with our littlest Sabers.
Mrs. St. Jean, who has been graciously doing double duty this year as a 2nd Grade teacher along with her Pre-K Director duties, has enjoyed being back in her former 2nd grade classroom and will continue to teach 2nd grade alongside Mrs. LaMarche for the upcoming year.
We are currently interviewing to fill the 1st grade teacher position and will share updates as the summer progresses.
In addition, Mr. Lucey (our general music teacher) has decided to pursue an opportunity outside of SJS. Mr. Corcoran (of Future Musicians, Inc.) is currently interviewing to fill that role.
