Meet Mrs. Girard
I was born and raised in New Hampshire and moved to Manchester when I got married in 1997. In 1991, I graduated from the University of Lowell with my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. In 2001, I went to Notre Dame College, housed right in this building, to earn my Masters Degree in Elementary Education.
Although I stayed home to raise my 5 children I always stayed active with education and children. My experiences cover a range of modes of education to include private, home education, public and charter schools. I worked as a librarian and volunteered on many levels to teach Jesus and the bible to children.
I went back into the classroom three years ago and this is my first year at Mt. St. Mary Academy. I feel truly blessed to be part of this great community.
In my spare time is devoted to spending time with my family, reading and studying my faith.
