It is a pleasure for me to share with you the good news that Maureen Tuohy will be appointed Vice Principal of Our Lady of Sorrows School effective July 1, 2017.
Mrs. Tuohy is no stranger to our school. She has been a member of our faculty since 2002 teaching both Grade 2 and Grade 7. As Vice Principal Mrs. Tuohy will work with Mr. Costantino in advancing the mission of our school and will be responsible to the pastor and principal for specific facets of our educational program. Initially, her work will be overseeing the transition of our PreK into our school program. She will retain her teaching position while serving as Vice Principal.
Mrs. Tuohy brings to this position the qualities of mind and heart that will strengthen the spiritual and academic formation of our students. Her credentials include a Master of Arts degree in Teaching from the College of New Jersey as well as New Jersey Expedited Certification for Educational Leadership, a Supervisory Certificate and Principal Certificate.
Over the past years, our school has benefitted from Mrs. Tuohy’s leadership as chair and/or co-chair of various committees: Math Professional Learning Community, AdvancEd Reaccreditation, Terra Nova, and Science Fair. Mrs. Tuohy is also a member of other committees and educational associations. It was certainly understandable when her colleagues named her “Teacher of the Year” in 2007.
I have every confidence that this appointment signals a great future for our school. We shall indeed benefit from a highly focused educational leader who possesses a strong commitment to Catholic education.
Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Tuohy and thanking her for her generous acceptance of this leadership role!
Msgr. Thomas N. Gervasio
