Mr. Watts A.M.A. (Ask Me Anything)
Thank you, Olivia, Hannah, Lucy, and Caroline for submitting this week’s questions. And, they were GREAT questions.
If you want to ask Mr. Watts a question, simply respond to this email.
1) What is your favorite sport?
Probably Football. I started playing in 1981 and coached college football for 13 years. But, I have a huge respect for and love all sports which I learned from being a college strength & conditioning coach for 15 years. Sports teaches us some great life lessons such as humility, teamwork, discipline, and selflessness.
2) Who is your favorite Saint and why?
St. Joseph. St. Joseph has two feast days: May 1
and my birthday, March 19
. My confirmation name is Joseph and my confirmation sponsor is my cousin Joe. I have a special devotion to St. Joseph as he is the patron saint of fathers and workers. Even though Saint Joseph is never quoted in scripture, he “says” a lot with his actions.
St. Joseph is a presider, a protector, and a provider for his family. I try to be like Saint Joseph and our students should too.
How can you by a presider (or leader) in your classroom and at our school?
How can you be a protector and stick up for the students who may need you?
How can you be a provider and provide support for your own family?
3) What is your favorite food?
1.) Anything my wife cooks. ;)
3T.) TAT, TT Murphs, Planks Pizza
4) What is your favorite color?
Green for St. Catharine Irish, and I’m also Irish
I also like Blue, because there are so many different shades that are cool
5) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Chocolate with Chocolate Chunks
6) What are you looking forward to most about being principal at St. Catharine School?
Getting to know all our students. I sincerely believe the most important part of my job is to bring our students closer to Jesus. Keeping students safe, engaged, and developing character are all important, but discipleship is most important. Our students at St. Catharine should always feel:
When all three are accomplished, students are free to be who God knows they can be.
“Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.”
-St. Catherine of Siena.
