Catherine M. Flaig

Fourth Grade Language Arts and Science Teacher

Appointed in 2000

I cherish St. George and feel privileged to be able to teach in this Christian environment. St. George is an exceptional school that sets high educational and moral standards while providing a challenging and motivating environment, filled with encouragement and fun. I find it easy to bring a positive attitude to teaching the school’s interesting curriculum. My students come to class enthusiastic about learning and as a teacher, I build on their excitement by making learning as challenging and meaningful as possible.

Since St. George is like a family, I let the children know I care about them tremendously. My students and I feel confident, safe and welcome here because of a strong support system led by our headmaster, Rob Devlin, our loyal staff members, and caring parents. St. George families go above and beyond to encourage teachers and students. We embrace the outside community as well, making everyone feel good about their willingness to give and to help others.
