I am overwhelmed with emotion being a member of ASC 25. Summer orientation at Green Hills was a spiritual and clarifying experience for me. In a short period of time, my cohorts and I bonded and became close friends. I couldn’t imagine a better leader for this experience than Fr. Drew. He helped us spiritually, emotionally and practically on our way to becoming Ignatian educators.
Touching down in Denver, we couldn’t have received a warmer welcome than from Chris Kellerman SJ, followed by a delightful dinner and social at the Jesuit residence. Upon arriving to our condo, it was clear how much work Bryan Timme and his colleagues put in to making the condo a home for us.
Colorado has welcomed me with its gorgeous weather and serene nature. My community at Regis Jesuit High School, along with the Arrupe Jesuit High School community, were fortunate enough to spend a weekend in the mountains. I often feel closest to the Lord through the beautiful wilderness. I hope to continue experiencing God’s presence through nature in this great state.
God has blessed me with a truly exceptional community. Mike, Alex and Estefany are considerate, supportive, fun-loving, intelligent, unique and strong in their faith. They inspire me to strive to become a better person. I have no doubt they will make great teachers and role models for the students at Regis Jesuit. I look forward to growing closer to them and growing in our faith on this journey together.
The Regis Jesuit High School community has been so supportive on my path to becoming an educator. I was nervous on my first day of meetings, but I have met so many amazing faculty members that have offered me practical advice and support in creating a positive learning environment. They have instilled the importance of cura personalis, not just in the classroom, but also in every facet of life. I am eager for the school year to begin and to learn all I can from this remarkable community.
