“Give of your hands to serve and your hearts to love.” ― Mother Teresa
I graduated from Baylor University located in Waco, Texas in May of 2000 with a B.S.E. and a specialization in reading instruction. During this time my spouse passed away and I decided I needed to be near friends and family, so we moved to Vandalia, Ohio. I began my career in the fall of 2000 by teaching at St. Peter’s Catholic School in Huber Heights. After a couple of years at St. Peter’s, I took a break from Catholic education and became a substitute teacher in the local public schools. I did this for a year and found that my heart was being called back to Catholic education. I loved the atmosphere of a Catholic school and enjoyed sharing my faith with those I worked with and our students. I have spent the last fifteen years in Catholic education at St. Christopher School. Twelve of those years were spent teaching honors reading, language arts, social studies and math to junior high students. During this time I worked on my Masters degree in Educational Leadership at the University of Dayton and graduated in 2016 with my Masters of Science in Educational Leadership, M.S.Ed. I also attend the Catholic Leadership Institute for Principals and I am in year two of the program.
In the summer of 2015 our principal took on a leadership role in her community (Precious Blood Nuns) and I applied for the position of principal. I was chosen to be principal of St. Christopher School that August and have been principal for two years and am in my third year this fall. I find great joy in my new position and love to come to school each day. To be able to pray during the day and teach and manage the school with a servant’s heart has been the most joyful experience!
Yours in Christ,
Mary R. Kincaid, M.S.Ed.
