Vickey McBride
ACE 18 teacher and former ACE intern
Brownsville, Texas

Vickey McBride views her journey to becoming an ACE teacher as characterized by the receiving and giving of gifts, and she sees the Holy Spirit behind it: “I was brought into this program by a force much greater than myself.” She is part of the ACE 18 cohort, teaching high school social studies at St. Joseph Academy in Brownsville, Texas.

Vickey is ready to give of herself to her community and students largely because of another gift that drives her forward—her faith. “As a product of the Catholic education system, kindergarten through college, I’m eager to give back to an institution that served me so well for so many years,” she says. “I’m glad to have found a program that will not only recognize my spirituality but challenge me to strive for an ever richer faith life.”
