Spiritual Connections Made Across Campus

(Chamberlain, S.D.) –From March 15 to 19, St. Joseph’s Indian School students and staff found creative ways to celebrate the annual Feast Day of St. Joseph, the Father of Jesus. To honor the school’s patron, students worked on a beautiful stained glass portrait of St. Joseph designed by Graphics/Preflight Specialist at Tipi Press, Ann Lens. This picture is an expression of both the Lakota culture and Catholic identity.  March 19 is a special day for St. Joseph’s Indian School to celebrate the school's patron but even more so this liturgical year as Pope Francis declared it the year of Saint Joseph. Students will continue to learn about St. Joseph and the important role he had as father of Jesus through this painting and other lessons.

Brynn Johnson - Problem-Solving with Passion

The past year has left many feeling drained, but teachers like Brynn Johnson, a fifth- and sixth-grade science teacher at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans, persist in teaching with passion and a readiness to problem-solve.

“I applaud all teachers everywhere because there was this huge moment where all teachers had to come together and collectively figure out what we do now,” says Brynn, who taught in Birmingham as part of ACE 14. “It’s real-life problem-solving, and it’s happening on a day-to-day basis.”
