Sister Georgiana: Lower School Spanish

Sister Georgiana lived in Peru, South America for 18 years and that gave her the opportunity to study Spanish and learn to appreciate the language. It wasn’t easy, but Sister knows all the tricks to encourage students to learn----praying, singing, drilling patterns, reading and play games.  She loves to see their excitement as they master a short poem, speak in sentences and answer questions.

This is Sister Georgiana's third assignment at SHS.  The first time she taught 5th and 6th grade language arts.  The second time she taught 2nd Grade and the Sacramental Program, and now she loves teaching Spanish.

Sister Georgiana has been at Sacred Heart for over 19 years and loves her assignment.  Sacred Heart School and Parish are very special places!

A few years ago, Sister took on a less busy schedule. She remains dedicated to working in the cafeteria and gets involved in some other activities when needed such as bartending at the major fundraiser, “Recess In The Courtyard”.  

Sister Eileen has become such a part of our Sacred Heart Family. She loves the students and has many relationships with parish families all of whom know her love for the “EAGLES”.   She enjoys engaging in conversation with the students at lunch.

Mrs. Cindy Holden: Physical Education Teacher

Having volunteered with children over the years and being trained and licensed as a health and physical education teacher (K-12) from Penn State and PA respectively, Mrs. Holden always knew that she wanted to work more with children after having her son. She worked in corporate wellness and fitness at Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, and Warner Lambert in Lititz and Lancaster for 28 years. 

After the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the time became right to work with children. Due to the pandemic, she had the opportunity to volunteer with children at the Dove Learning Pod at Grace Lutheran Church. This small learning environment was created due to the pandemic to assist School District of Lancaster children without home support or internet access. There, Mrs. Holden taught physical education to kindergarten through seventh graders. It was so fulfilling and rewarding to see the children enjoying movement through various locomotor games and relay races, modified soccer and flag football, dance, and parachute games. With no equipment or indoor space available, she used the field across the street for activity space and equipment she had at home. 

Mrs. Holden feels so blessed to be working as a Physical Education teacher in the community in which she lives and to share her love of movement with the children at Sacred Heart School.
