Life in the City

Atlanta is a great place to go out to a relaxing dinner or to paint the town (or both). From hanging out at the Vortex in eclectic Little Five Points or chatting on the patio at Neighbors to dancing the night away in Buckhead, there’s something for everybody in this city. 

Our community is lucky enough to live in a perfect 3-bedroom, 2-bath house in residential Atlanta. In addition to a breakfast area and living room, we have a large “rumpus” room (mostly used for grading and relaxing) that is perfect for hosting any ACEr who misses their connecting flight at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. Our handy landlord lives just next door, our parish is 5 minutes up the street, and I-85 is spitting distance from our house.

If you had to pick just one word to describe your ACE experience so far, what would it be (and why)?

Full. There’s not a lot of down time as an ACE teacher. The days are full—full of kids, full of papers to be graded, full of lessons to be planned. But, at its best, my experience as an ACE teacher has also been full of other things—full of friendship, full of laughter, full of humility, full of support, full of love. My experience as an ACE teacher has been busy, but the kind of busy that fills your heart with hope and your mind with gratitude.

Why did you say "yes" to serving children in Catholic schools through ACE?

The students in our schools are the future doctors, engineers, bankers, lawyers, and government officials of the world. I said “yes” to ACE because I believe it is paramount that we not only make students aware of their incredible potential, but also provide them with the tools for sharing those gifts with their community. Embracing the God-given potential of every student and teaching them how to engage with and be active members in the Body of Christ is at the very core of Catholic education, and it makes me proud to have said “yes” to ACE.
