About The Teacher

Mrs.Noreen Watson has been a teacher for thirty-nine years in the 
Archdiocese of Philadelphia.  She began her career at St. Ann's in 
Phoenixville teaching third grade for two years and then moved to 
Visitation B.V.M. to teach third grade.  After two years, Mrs. Watson 
was "promoted" to sixth grade where she truly feels at home.  Mrs. Watson 
teaches Religion, Social Studies, and English Language Arts.

Mrs. Watson attended St. Augustine School in Bridgeport and Bishop Kenrick 
High School (yes, she did play basketball with Mrs. Melle!). She is a 
graduate of Immaculata College in Malvern. She lives in Collegeville with 
her husband Robert and is a member of St. Eleanor Church.

She has a great love of things Irish ~ even does a few jigs and reels.  
Mrs. Watson is a member of the Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians where 
she served as an officer for many years. Golf is also one of her favorite 
activities ~ she plays in a ladies league at Gilbertsville Golf Course 
with Mrs. Dippy. 

Mission For The Class

Mrs. Watson believes that her most important goal is to foster in her 
students a closer relationship with God and a deeper love of Him.  It is a 
great honor for her to help her class grow in the knowledge and 
understanding of their faith.  She takes this responsibility very seriously.

Mrs. Watson will also guide and encourage her students to become more 
responsible and accountable for their actions, both academically and 
socially.  The poster on Mrs. Watson's podium says it all ~ "Your Choices, 
Your Actions, Your Life!"

She strives to help her students develop into self-motivated, independent 
workers who are able to think critically and write precisely.
