Coming Home- Meet MSM Alumna and Current Teacher, Leigha Pierce
My name is Leigha Pierce and I am currently serving Mount St. Mary as a new art teacher and member of the campus ministry team. Already this year I have had the opportunity to help plan and lead the all school retreat, freshman service day, freshman heart to heart, junior service day and the girls’ Kairos retreat. It is so amazing to see our students active in service to the community and faith growth through school. That is something truly special to the Mount. Being able to talk about my faith with my students in and outside the classroom has been so refreshing and has allowed my own faith to grow in the process. I am excited for what is coming up the rest of the school year and am looking forward to how some of our programs will expand in the next few months and years!Coming HOME is such a blessing. I graduated from The Mount in 2010 and have been waiting for an opening to my dream job ever since! I’ve had a special place in my heart for this place since I was in school here, but being back as a teacher has made me even more full of joy than I thought it would. Each member of the student body and staff is so supportive. In just the first quarter of the school year they’ve had my back, answered constant questions, assisted me when I needed help, pushed me to be the best version of myself and prayed for me and my family in times of need. Encouragement, prayers and love are constantly thrown my direction. The Mount Family is something I have never experienced somewhere else and there is a spirit that follows you even when you’re away. I am so thrilled to be working with some amazing coworkers and students. Go Rockets!
