Room 120: Mrs. Theresa Connolly
I am very excited to join the staff at Mary, Seat of Wisdom School. I am deeply committed to Catholic education and have attended Catholic schools for my grammar school, high school and undergraduate education. It is my hope that my love of literature paired with my educational training will allow me to provide excellent support to our reading students.
