Superintendent says Catholic schools did outstanding job during ‘most unusual year’
As she looks over her rather eventful first year as Secretary for Catholic Schools and Superintendent of Schools for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Washington, Kelly Branaman said she takes pride in the outstanding job educators did in providing a Catholic education during a time of pandemic.
“I am proud simply to be a part of this community of leaders and educators. We have grown so much in a short period of time, managing the spiritual, logistical, managerial, educational and safety aspects of this pandemic,” Branaman said in an e-mail interview last month with the Catholic Standard. “We came together more frequently as leaders to discuss plans and strategies and to learn from one another. We came together more frequently to pray and support one another.”
