After Care 

Ms. Sara Tellez has been teaching at SSJ since 2015, but before this, she was working as an aid in our school office since 2007. She jokingly refers to those years in the office as “Staple Camp”. She is a proud SSJ alum and product of 17 years of Catholic schooling. She credits those years for developing her passion for working with and helping others. Ms. Tellez has lived, taught, and mentored in various settings around the globe. One of her not-so-hidden passions is her love of the theatre. She studied theatre, art, history, and writing in England, and considers herself a bit of an Anglophile. Speaking about her teaching she says, “I feel blessed to continue to work with children and young adults from various backgrounds. It is for this reason that social justice is at the core of every subject I teach. It doesn’t matter what subject one is learning, it is how the material is applied in the world that is the true test. Each student is unique and has a different story to tell. At SSJ we value the development of the whole person, and I love knowing that every day that I am preparing the next generation of diverse students who will respond to the needs of the world and its human family.”
