Bishop of the Month

Teachers are asked to nominate a student who has gone above and beyond the call of duty whether it be in the classroom or beyond. A student becomes nominated by the teacher who writes a description of what wonderful things the student has done without revealing the name. One student is chosen from each grade level, during the monthly All-School Mass the Bishop of the Month is announced. The winner receives a pizza lunch from Orlando’s and a tag day!

October Faculty Bishop of the Month

This month’s faculty Bishop of the Month can best be described as faithful, reliable, professional, caring, kind, and compassionate. This person routinely goes above and beyond the call of duty in the role as teacher here at BE. This person seeks out opportunities to help others, whether it’s another teacher or a student or someone within the greater community. This person’s faith is truly the guiding force in life and strives to live life in imitation of Christ’s. And it’s the small things as well as the big things – this teacher always volunteers to cover a homeroom when we have traffic issues, gladly covers classes for co-workers when they have to be out and looks for creative ways to positively impact the students in her classes. She truly cares about her students and she makes sure that they know that. She embodies the model of servant leadership and encourages others to do the same.  She finds original ways to encourage and promote healthy living and a positive mental attitude. And most recently, she initiated one of our newest and most successful programs here at BE – the addition of our very own mental health therapy dog, Moses, who now lives with our Bishop of the Month and her family – please join me in congratulating and thanking our October Faculty Bishop of the Month, Janel Swanson.
