This weeks Faculty spotlight: Jean Ossi

I have taught Art at SJCS for nearly 14 years and prior to that I have been a parishioner for over 26 years.  When the time came to send our son to school there was no question as to where he would attend grade school, for 10 years SJCS was the best fit for him and our family.

In my role of being an art teacher, I can watch the students grow and mature into becoming young people who are filled with a sense of adventure.  When I teach the students to explore and learn during the creative process using various medium and techniques, I know they are learning how to analyze, and problem solve.  Skills are built by practice and art is an avenue for the students to practice and build their skills. In creating art there are no mistakes, but opportunities and to paraphrase the artist Pablo Picasso,” every child is an artist”.

Having experienced the school as a parent and now as a teacher what stands out and makes SJCS special is the faculty.  Over the years, I have been given an opportunity to work with many unselfish and dedicated professionals.  As a parent I saw how they each care and nurture the individual child during their formative years.  In the role of an educator, I have learned and grown from those who have been here for many years.  It is about the relationships, trust, and respect we all have for each other that sets us apart and is what makes working at San Jose a pleasure.

SJCS is a community.  Our faculty make it a family.  - Jean Ossi #GoTrojans #SanJosePride

Our school is so lucky to have her!

When we returned to in-classroom setting this year, we were greeted with all smiles from Mrs. Ossi and all the faculty. Even behind the mask, we could see your face light up to have the McCormick tribe back to school. It was like coming home, thank you Mrs. Ossi for your gift of Art, but so much moreπŸ’•

#TestimonialTuesday In 2014 we moved to from New York to Jacksonville and all 4 of our children attended San Jose Catholic School, 3 of which are still there with our oldest in high school. We love the whole child approach that nurtures their faith, provides a challenging and enriching academic environment, and builds their physical development and team spirit. The teachers, administrators, staff, and parents are truly dedicated to the mission of the school and most of all to fostering a wonderful community. San Jose Catholic School is a community of learning and faith that we are grateful to be a part of. ” – The Dooley Family #GoTrojans #SanJosePride
