Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Nora Molloy
My name is Nora Molloy and I am a 6th grade teacher at St. Jude School. This is my first year teaching, however, this will be my 11th year at SJS. I attended this school from 2001-2011 and I could not be more thrilled to be back at a place I consider to be my second home.
I graduated from DeSales University this past May with my BA Degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and I am a PA certified teacher for grades PreK-6. Throughout my time in college, I learned a lot about the way children learn and various theories on how to teach effectively. I personally favor hands-on, discovery learning where students take center-stage in every lesson as I facilitate their understanding. But more than this, I realized that the best way to teach is by educating the entire person - mind and spirit. I want my students to not only learn about our Catholic faith, but understand why we believe and how much they are loved. I want my students to see Christ in one another and in themselves. This is why I cannot see myself teaching anywhere other than a Catholic school. It is a vocation I am honored to accept.
St. Jude has always had a special place in my heart and I feel so blessed to begin my teaching career with such an amazing and supportive team of faculty and staff members. I am so excited to guide my students as they grow in grace and discover who they want to be as students, friends, leaders, and children of God!
