Sister Angela brings the charism and spirituality of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary to her philosophy of providing counselors and educators with the foundation they need to service both personally and professionally in educational and other counseling settings. Along with formal classroom study, Sister’s educational background includes internships and practica in school psychology at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, Department of Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrics (Philadelphia, PA), and mental health counseling with clients with dual-diagnoses at Einstein Medical Center, Outpatient Clinic, (Philadelphia, PA) and Montgomery County MHMR Day Program (Norristown, PA).
Sister Angela is a certified school psychologist who both administered and analyzed psychoeducational testing for students in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, including those with verbal, hearing and visual-impairments. As principal of Archangels’ Academy, a school for students with cognitive and developmental delays, ages 5 to 16, Sister was responsible for monitoring student progress, overseeing faculty and staff, working with parents and organizations, community networking and daily running of the school.
Love for teaching has always led Sister to maintain a role of interaction with individual students through support and instruction. Sister served as an Educational Specialist in the Bonaventure Program at Archbishop Ryan High School (Philadelphia, PA) directing and challenging students who were diagnosed with specific learning disabilities to use their learning strengths, self-advocate and take responsibility for their success within a regular education high school setting.
