Last week, I was given the opportunity to sit down and interview the newest staff member of Fontbonne Hall Academy. The Folio would like to extend a great big welcome to Mr. Joseph Principato.
Joining us mid-year as a Science Teacher, Mr. Principato is eager to jump right in and make sure we are all prepared for our exams as well as for our futures. He attended Xaverian High School and played on the football and baseball team. He also was a part of Xaverian’s jazz band. Mr. Principato attended Cornell, where he studied biology and nutrition. He shared that members of his family have attended Fontbonne in the past, so he is confident that this will be a great fit for him. While this is his first official teaching position, he has extensive training as a successful science tutor for many high school students prior to joining the Bonnie Family.
After the interview was finished, I realized I neglected to ask Mr. Principato which of Fontbonne many clubs piqued his interest. He said he would like to take over the Engineering club some point in the future... So, Mr. Principato, if you are reading this, please let The Folio know what your other interests and hobbies are so we can match you with a club to support. Personally speaking, The Folio (or Drama) is always a great place to stop by. The doors are always open.
Good luck to you, Mr. Principato. The Folio Staff is glad you are here!
