Building Up Catholic Educators - ACE & ECHO at PCRHS

Providence Cristo Rey High School partners with two well-known Catholic education programs through the University of Notre Dame. Three of our teachers are part of these programs: Imani Bunn, Kelsey Hayes, and Andrew Jansen. All three were drawn to these programs because of the opportunity to teach in a Catholic school, continue their education, and take advantage of the strong supports each program offers to first-year teachers.

Kelsey Hayes is part of ECHO Teaching Theology, a two-year service-learning program that offers participants the opportunity to earn an M.A. in Theology from the University of Notre Dame, to serve the Church as a theology teacher, and to live in an intentional faith community with others while engaging in spiritual formation.

Kelsey teaches sophomore and junior Theology.

Kelsey, why did you pick the ECHO program?
