The Proof is in the People: Faculty Spotlights!
Amy Cavaliere holds a Bachelor of Science in Athletic Training and Exercise Physiology as well as a Masters of Arts in Athletic Training from Ohio University. Amy is a certified Athletic Trainer who has worked at both Foran High School and Stratford High School.

Ms Cavaliere will be teaching Biology at St Joes this year! She comes to us from Shelton High School where she taught Honors General Science, Academic Biology, and 12 th grade Anatomy and Physiology.  Welcome, Ms Cavaliere!
Thomas Forde is an English Teacher at St Joes and will moderate our new broadcast journalism class this year. He writes:

Very few schools in the country can boast what we have to offer. I was elated when I was selected to teach this new course. I spent 17 years working in broadcast journalism and look forward to sharing my experience with students who either may be interested in the field, or just want to have fun and become campus celebrities.

I want this course to entertain and serve the entire SJ community. I want students to unleash their creativity on an SJTV audience that will rate the broadcast as a daily highlight. I want this to be the most fun class offered at St Joes!

There is still room available in Mr Forde's broadcast journalism class. Adding this class will not change any student’s current schedule. All grades levels are welcome. Interested students should contact their Guidance Counselor to join!
