Hi, my name is Andrea White and I teach Middle School Religion and Language Arts, as well as acting as the 8th Grade Homeroom Advisor. This will be my 10th year teaching. I graduated from Illinois State University in 1993 and taught at the Middle School level at St. Matthew Catholic School in Glendale Heights, Illinois for five years. I then moved to Colorado and taught at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School for four years. I took some time off work to be at home with my children when they were young. I have also worked in the business world in which I had the opportunity to work in an international setting. However, my first love is teaching which brings me back to where I am today.
I believe that all children can be successful academically. It is my job to find the learning style that best fit each individual child. I also believe that teachers must teach to the child’s interests and strengths. As a teacher I am acutely aware that I am not just teaching the child academics but also the social and emotional skills that are fundamentally necessary to become a successful student in High School, College and later in the work place. It truly is my pleasure and honor that I am able to work with your children. “Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.” Aristotle.
