Dear Middle School Parents,

Mrs. Gutierrez has made the decision to move to California with her family and we, as a school community, wish them well as they begin the next chapter of their lives. I will truly miss that beautiful baby on future teacher Zoom meetings!!!

I have interviewed extensively again and have hired a Highly Qualified Teacher to teach Middle School Science. His name is Kevin Downey. Mr. Downey comes to us with a Master of Arts in Teaching from Montclair State University, Master of Business Administration from Fordham University and a Bachelor of Science degree in Engineering from the United States Military Academy-West Point and served as a Captain in the US Army. Most importantly though was the wonderful childhood memories he had from attending a Catholic Grammar school.

Mr. Downey last taught science to sixth and seventh grade students in Elizabeth, NJ. There he was responsible for the construction, implementation, and continual revision of the curriculum. His students achieved a ninety percent grade on the New Jersey standardized test for science.

Mr. Downey will start officially on Monday, March 1, 2021.

Please welcome Mr. Downey to the SRLA family.

Best,
Principal Underwood

Dear Saint Rose Community,

It has truly been a pleasure to spend part of my teaching career here at Saint Rose.  I have experienced such a beautiful and warm family atmosphere, which is very unique to our school. While at Saint Rose, the students have made such a positive impact on who I am as an educator. While it may have been my job to teach Science, my students in turn have taught me so much more. All of their unique personalities have made Science classes exciting and meaningful. I wish all of you the best and great adventures ahead!

Love,
Mrs. Gutierrez
