St Teresa of Avila

I’m no stranger to the plaid uniform skirt.

As a student, and a former art teacher, I’ve spent my fair share of time in the halls of Catholic Schools.

I love being a photographer, but still miss the students tremendously. So, I always jump at the chance to do promotional photography for a local school.

My camera and I spent a day wandering the halls of St Teresa of Avila .

The church is a familiar landmark on the west side of Cincinnati, and is stunningly beautiful.

The school, however, was new to me (well, except for a basketball tournament or two, back in grade school).

Turns out the school is every bit as beautiful as the church. Original tile work on the walls, handpainted murals, arched openings, and ornate wooden doors with iron handles and trim.

They’ve definitely managed to hold on to the building’s original charm, but at the same time, there was no lack of technology to fill my lens. Smart boards, laptops, and tablets were everywhere.

And the students? Their energy and smiles made a cold day warm.

I’m so grateful I had the chance to photograph such a wonderful school, it reminded me of why I loved teaching so much. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the stunning pictures of the St. Teresa students. I was most fortunate to teach first grade there in the 70’s. Awesome to see those shining faces.
