From Mrs. Borelli: 

"I came to Holy Family as a fill in teacher. I stayed because I can't think of a better place to teach. Holy Family has a supportive family environment with small class sizes that enables individualized attention for each student. I like that I can teach students with the most current technology while making the most of their future education and immersing them in the Catholic Faith."
