Profiles of Jesuit Faculty & Staff

This Summer, nine members of our faculty and staff are walking a route in Spain with sites related to the life of St. Ignatius. The following post by Mr. Austin Nevitt is the ninth in a series of their reflections. Over the past two days we have walked through two very different landscapes. On Sunday we walked 24 km from...
Children are truly a source of joy and happiness in our lives. Their innocence and enthusiasm allows us to appreciate life and the present moment just as they do themselves. Radiating joy, a baby can lighten up any situation with something as simple as an uproarious laugh or a gentle coo. Not only does a baby quickly forgive, but he...

The unsung superheroes that don’t wear capes. The lifesavers. Those people that feed me. Whatever you may call them, parents play an incredible role in our lives both in the spotlight and behind the scenes, capable of making our lunch one moment and helping us wash our clothes in the next.

Mrs. Bean fundamentally created the current statistics program at Jesuit, but she has also left her mark outside of the classroom through her exemplary involvement in community service. Fully committing...

However, to have a teacher who spent two years in the seminary, graduated Jesuit as Salutatorian of the Class of 2003, and performs comedic improv shows on weekends adds another level of value to Jesuit...
The bell rings, signaling the end of third period. The rumble of freshmen feet vibrate the floors of the hall. Congregating in the cafeteria, they line up for the food. The lunch staff, standing ready, prepares for the influx of students over the next several hours. I had a chance to sit down with Mr. Stephen Traynor, owner of Gold...
Perhaps unbeknownst to the student body, many teachers take graduate classes during the school year and also over the summer. Many of these teachers take exhausting 3 hour night classes all over the DFW area once a week so that they can get their masters’ degree. All of the teachers concurred that it was difficult to balance the workload of...
With a new school year, comes a new freshman class, new teachers, new facilities, new ASC members, and new athletic coaches. In this particular school year, Jesuit has experienced a spark in the number of new coaches, and one of them, Eric Gusa, coaches swimming. A Jesuit Dallas alumnus, graduating with the class of 2002, Mr. Eric Gusa is a...
