Here’s a complete video of “12 Months a Year,” the show we recently put on featuring students, alumni, and others.
Mrs. Guerrero was born and educated in the Philippines. Her first teaching job was at San Beda Grade School in Manilla where she worked for 22 years. In 2000 she came to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy. To her ‘teaching is not only a career but a vocation
Mrs. Julia Mathew received her Masters Degree from Nova Southeastern University in Reading Education.
Before getting into teaching, Mrs. Mathew was interested in becoming a Pediatric Nurse and even worked in the ER department of a hospital. After several years in the field, she decided to become a teacher. Her passion for the field of education began when she took up tutoring and as being the eldest child, she was always around to help her younger siblings in their studies. She has been a teacher for over 8 years, with this being her first at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy. In addition to teaching fourth grade, Mrs. Mathew is also in charge of the Academy’s Sports program.
She says of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy that “there is a sense of community and family unlike that of any school I’ve worked at before.” Outside of work she enjoys gardening and cooking. We were able to get her to share one of her favorite recipes for Vegan Banana Bread (which is linked below).
Ms. Madaio (Mansueto) graduated from St. John’s University with two Masters Degrees in General Education and Special Education.
While teaching wasn’t her initial career choice, she began in finance, Ms. Madaio (Mansueto) found her passion for teaching after listening to her daughter read for the first time. She has been a teacher for over 10 years, with the last 5 as a first grade teacher at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Academy. In addition to teaching first grade, Ms. Madaio (Mansueto) is also in charge of the Academy’s Aquinas program.
The part of the job that she finds the most rewarding is watching her students grow. Outside of work she enjoys spending time with her children and cooking.
