Ms. Grass taught my 4th grade math class at the Academy of the Sacred Heart in St. Charles, Missouri. She was the first to see my potential after many hard years at a different school, in fact I was repeating the 4th grade at that time. Her inspiration and the amazing work of many at the school led me through an MBA and work as a Chief Financial Officer. In all of my roles, I have lived out the social justice mission of the school too. I am thrilled that 30 years later Ms. Grass is still at the school serving as their Archivist.
