Mrs. Birge says, “My favorite aspect of teaching at Saint Mary School is working with students in a Catholic School setting. I also appreciate the connection between family – home – school – parish – community. Everyone at Saint Mary School strives to live the mission of our school in their daily lives. I am the product of Catholic education – and truly understand the value and importance of a parochial foundation. As an active member of the parish, school, and community, I honestly look forward to each day, and treasure the many wonderful children and adults I encounter along the way. “
