St. Paul School
Mrs. Erma Flores
As an active member in her parish, an Administrator in the Diocese of Sacramento for 6 years, and a classroom teacher for over 20 years, it is with much motivation and grace Mrs. Flores wishes to bring her vision of Catholic Identity to St. Paul School.
She believes that the philosophy of Catholic identity and its relationship to academic excellence, is “in every aspect of my life. My actions, my word, my relationships, how I view myself and how I am viewed by others speak of my Catholic faith. I try to live...every day to be a witness to Christ. I will lead by example and foster Catholic Identity in my students, the faculty and staff, parents, and the community as we walk side by side with Christ. Developing a strong Catholic identity must include a complete academic curriculum that embodies our faith. As students begin to understand their purpose in the world, become rooted in their faith and desire to become true Disciples of Christ, they must also become critical thinkers, reach their academic potential and be good citizens”
Mrs. Flores earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies and teaching credential from California State University, East Bay, and a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration.
Mrs. Flores shared, “I appreciate the rich traditions and esteemed reputation of St. Paul’s and I have great expectations for our future. My vision is to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to strengthen our Catholic faith and the rigorous academics St. Paul School already possesses as well as developing new opportunities to enrich our school, parish and students.”
