“Humility and gratefulness are two words that I associate with my teaching at St. Elizabeth Elementary School. The Sisters of Mercy provided the foundation for a lifetime of religious education and high academic standards. I always believed in sustaining the high standards of education at St. Elizabeth that began long ago. ‘Give a bowl of rice to a man and you feed him for a day. Teach him to grow his own rice and you will save his life.’—Confucius.”
