Holy Child Nun Conducts Student Teaching

Sr. Gloria Okuh visited Oak Knoll for two weeks recently to conduct student teaching before she graduates from Rosemont College this spring.

Sister Gloria is a Holy Child Sister from the African Province in her final semester at Rosemont College. She will return to Africa this summer after graduation to teach English.

While visiting Oak Knoll, Sr. Gloria spent time observing classes in both the Lower and Upper Schools. She taught a number of English classes from grades 7 through 10.

"The girls loved her," said Upper School Principal Mary Sciarrillo.

Sr. Gloria visited Oak Knoll both before and after the Christmas holiday and the Upper School had the pleasure of witnessing Sr. Gloria celebrate her faith when she sang "Silent Night" in her native tongue. She also sang "How Can Anyone" by Shania Noll, a song about being beautiful.

Sr. Gloria also gave the school a piece of Holy Child fabric that her African students wear as uniforms.
