DIR. OF SPECIAL ED
I am thrilled to be a part of the Mother Teresa family. I graduated from Immaculata University with an undergraduate degree in early childhood, elementary, and special education. I have my master's degree in education along with my reading specialist certification from Cabrini University. I taught second grade for six years. When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my family and coaching basketball at the Agnes Irwin School. I am looking forward to working with you and your child this school year!
Mother Teresa Regional Catholic School
Annual Fund 2023
Greetings from Ms. Pagan
Education has always been at the heart of the Catholic Mission, and our students are the greatest work of the church! Every day our faculty and staff give their very best to ensure that our students are prepared to step into the world and share their knowledge, God-given talents, and faith fostered by their Mother Teresa Regional Catholic School education. Since Mother of Divine Providence opened its doors almost 70 years ago, we have experienced many changes, the biggest of which occurred 10 years ago in 2012, when we merged with St. Teresa of Avila to become Mother Teresa Regional. However, our commitment to excellence in academics and providing a stable learning environment for our students has not changed! We are still a family who supports and cares for each other, and we rely on the support of our community members, alumni, and MTC families to keep MTC going strong! This was most evident this year when we were awarded the National Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence. We were one of only 10 schools in the entire state, and one of only 24 non-public schools nationwide to receive this tremendous honor!
Each year, we ask for support for the Panther Fund, which helps us close the gap between tuition and the actual cost of an MTC education. The Panther Fund generates unrestricted dollars that can be applied to the areas that have the greatest need for this academic year. This fund covers everything from faculty salaries to technology, to new academic programs, to facilities improvements; all of which ensure that we can continue to educate children in a safe, supportive environment that prepares them to be good citizens. A gift of any amount will make an impact!
In a time when Catholic education is more important than ever, I ask that you prayerfully consider a gift to the Panther Fund, so that MTC can continue to fortify our students with a strong Catholic education and provide a solid foundation for life.
MTC provides an environment where students flourish academically, emotionally, physically, and socially. The commitment of the faculty, parents, and clergy to provide an exemplary Catholic education is the key to the MTC’s academic success. With Jesus as our model, self-discipline, personal responsibility, and leadership are valued at MTC School as highly as the students’ academic endeavors. The MTC School Annual Fund is a yearly development campaign to support our school’s strong tradition of faith, academic excellence, and service for the future. Combined with other fundraising efforts, the MTC Annual Fund is what allows us to meet our financial obligations for the school’s operating budget, as well as to continue to improve upon the exemplary education that MTC School provides.
The three key goals of the Annual fund are:
Increased Access to Catholic Education
There are families in our community who are committed to the Church’s mission and Christ-centered learning. The Annual Fund will keep tuition costs affordable so that parents can invest in their children’s future at MTC.
Teachers must be lifelong learners to give their students a quality Christ-centered education. Enhancing professional development for our faculty and staff through workshops and continuing education will provide our educators with the vital tools for student success.
We need to continue to improve our space and facilities to provide an optimal learning environment.
