I am Mary Petrash and I will be teaching Junior High Language Arts this year. I’m looking forward to the new school year and a fresh start while keeping our shared values, traditions and faith together as St. Elizabeth of the Trinity School.
This will be my 19th year as an elementary school educator having taught grades first through eighth throughout the years in Chicago, Spain and San Diego. I have taught Religious Education at various levels and parishes for 15 years.
Teaching is my vocation and my passion. I’m excited to help guide the 6th, 7th and 8th graders this year working with the art of our English language in all its forms.
I live in Edison Park with my husband and 9 year old son, Joe. We are involved in the St. Juliana Parish and enjoy urban farming and bike riding. I also read a lot and play too much Papa Pear.
