Mulkern, Ellie

Mrs. Ellie Mulkern
Mrs. Mulkern is a graduate of the University of Arizona and has been teaching/subbing here at SSJ since 2008. The Mulkern family are active parishioners at our church.  Their three children have all graduated from SSJ – two of which are in Catholic high schools, and the other is off to college.  Mrs. Mulkern highly values not only the education SSJ offers but most importantly, being able to celebrate and talk about our Catholic faith daily!
