The Proof is in the People - Staff Spotlight!
Jennifer Spano, English Teacher

People always say Saint Joe's has a way of calling individuals to their true purpose because faith always finds a way. Ms Spano was called to St Joe's in 2012. Throughout her seven years, Ms Spano has found many opportunities to grow as an individual with help from her freshmen and sophomore literature classes.

Ms Spano holds two bachelors degrees (English & Psychology) from UCONN, as well as a Masters in the Art of Teaching from Sacred Heart University.

While at SJ, Ms Spano has self-published a memoir on teaching, and received her certification as an official Zumba fitness trainer, which she and Ms Aldana instruct each Monday in the Health and Wellness Center!

Always Never Yours by Emily Wibberley
Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find their one true love right after dating her. It's not a curse or anything, it's just the way things are and Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theater, and fulfilling her dream school's acting requirement in the smallest role possible.
