Faculty & Staff

Excellence in teaching is the heart of an outstanding school. Saint Joseph Regional School seeks to recruit, develop, and retain teachers with the highest professional standards. We are committed to hiring teachers who demonstrate a commitment to the life of the mind and development of character and citizenship that is found within a traditional Catholic school classroom.

Educator Roland Barth asserts that “the quality of adult relationships within a school has more to do with the quality and character of the school and with the accomplishments of students than any other factor.” We believe this to be true at Saint Joseph Regional School. A commitment to teamwork and professionalism based on mutual respect and a high level of performance characterizes the our faculty.  We are staffed by the Sisters of Saint Joseph and experienced lay teachers.
