Sister Donna’s philosophy of education (and life) is summarized in her own down-to-earth words: “I think each one of us is important. I think God created us with a special purpose. If I don’t accommodate that purpose, then it’s not going to be done. And I would want our students to learn respect for one another and for the broader world. For instance, if we’re so concerned with our own, taking care of ourselves, which I call ‘in-love,’ without reaching out to others, or ‘out-love,’ then we get too smothered.” In serving others, Sister Donna found meaning and purpose.
