Hi, my name is Tammy Emerich and this is my first year as principal of St. Mary's Catholic School. I have been an educator for 26 years, 20 of those as an English teacher at the secondary level. The last six years, I have been in administration. I have experience in public, charter and private education. My previous administrative job was at Bishop Kelly High School where I served as assistant principal of academic affairs.
I am a life-long learner and hold several degrees. My BA in English is from a small liberal arts college in Colorado; I hold a MA in English from Boise State University; lastly, I have my Ed. Specialist degree in Educational Leadership from the University of Idaho. I am not finished learning and would like to pursue my PhD some time in the near future!
There are several great things about being at St. Mary's. The students and faculty are amazing to work with and the spirituality here is palpable. This is truly a spirit-filled community and I feel privileged to be a part of it!
