Staff Member: Joanne Battista
Mrs. Battista graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from Cabrini University. Following graduation, she worked in marketing and client services. After relocating to Florida in 1997, she worked at Sweetwater Episcopal Academy for 23 years in marketing. Mrs. Battista enjoys being in the classroom to help students through their journey of discovery. She loves listening to their stories and seeing their excitement as they learn new concepts.
Mrs. Battista is an avid runner and enjoys early morning runs with her friends. She loves hiking in North Carolina with her husband, two kids, and JJ, her cute golden doodle. She is a huge fan of coffee, pizza, and sports. She loves how sports bring people together and is a huge GameDay fan. She has remained a true Philly sports fanatic. This is her first year at Morning Star Catholic School. After her first few weeks of school, she was reminded of a line from Coach McGinty in The Replacements, “you need miles and miles of heart”. Mrs. Battista loves Morning Star Catholic School because “it has lots of heart and the children are truly loved by all the teachers & staff!”
