Posted on 08/16/2021

We have some new faces at Christ the King School this year!

Mrs. Margo Juliano-Thompson has joined the faculty as our new Art teacher. She moved from New Jersey where she taught art for twenty-one years. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a Master of Instructional Technology degree, and a Master of Arts degree in Education, Special Education focus. Mrs. Thompson received her primary schooling in the Catholic school system of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which guided her aspiration of becoming an artist.

Mr. Shawn Sterling is our new Middle School Science teacher. He moved from Indiana where he taught science at New Prairie Middle School and completed a Master’s degree at Notre Dame. He was nominated by his students as the “Lifechanger of the Year.” Mr. Sterling is licensed in both history and science, and has experience teaching middle school science and history, overseeing science fairs, coaching track, and serving as a Catholic mission leader on the campus of Rutgers University. Mr. Sterling will also be coaching our Science Olympiad program.

Our new, full-time counselor is Bailey Biggerstaff, who completed her Master of Science in School Counseling. Ms. Biggerstaff started her career as an elementary teacher, returning to school to pursue a counseling degree so that she could support student’s social and emotional health. Her past teaching experience offers her insight for counseling in a school environment and her internships at the elementary, middle, and high school levels broadened her experience for supporting students’ mental health at all ages.

Our new Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Teresa Davis, is a new face to Christ the King School as a teacher, but not a new face to the Christ the King School and Church Community. Mrs. Davis is the wife of Paul Davis ’77, and mother of Philip ’04 and Kevin ’05 (deceased). She holds a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, a Master’s in Elementary School Counseling and Reading Specialist Certification, certification as a Library Media Specialist, and Master’s Plus 45 with an Emphasis in Reading Disabilities and Library Science. Mrs. Davis believes that the library is a place of discovery and hopes to engage parents and students in conversations about books. They are currently reading “Towers Falling” in light of the upcoming 20th Anniversary of 9/11.

Please welcome all of these new educators and staff to our school.
