Graduate becomes the principal
at Fremont's Holy Spirit School
Maureen Christensen, the new principal of Holy Spirit School in Fremont, is right at home.
"As a graduate of Holy Spirit School (1977), I am committed to leading the school in a positive direction by creating an environment that supports academic excellence and responsible citizenship through service and faith."
Christensen, who was graduated from Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, passed along the gift of Catholic education, sending her two daughters, who are 20 and 22, to St. Isidore School in Danville and Carondelet High School in Concord. Her younger daughter is continuing her Catholic education at the University of San Diego.
Meanwhile, Christensen continues her work at Holy Spirit. "I am honored to serve as the new principal of Holy Spirit School," she said. "I feel truly blessed to be the instructional leader of this Catholic community partnering with Father Mathew Vellankal. I look forward to actively serving this thriving community and working with such a talented, collaborative team of educators, supportive parents and faith-filled students and parishioners."
Christensen brings years of teaching experience and managerial experience working as a human resource leader in the corporate world. She has a bachelor of arts degree in psychology with a minor in business administration, and a Multiple Subject Clear Teaching Credential.
"Holy Spirit School fosters the belief that God is the focal point of our lives,'" she said. "As principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors knows that Christ truly is the reason for our school and that we are excited and happy to be here! This attitude enables us all to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive and nurturing environment."
