Mr. Joseph Casanova, 6th Grade

Mr. Joseph Casanova graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 2009 with a BA in Urban Studies and a minor in Public Service. While at the University he was employed as a tutor in the Writing Center. In addition, Mr. Casanova tutored refugees from Somalia and Burma, and  served in AmeriCorps for two years after completing his degree.  While working in Americorps he taught in a pre-K classroom  focusing  primarily on literacy development and then served as a teacher/mentor in a Pittsburgh public high school.  Mr. Casanova joined the faculty of RAA in 2015 and teaches English/Language  Arts and Religion to 6th-8th grades.

My motivation for teaching is rooted in my identity as a follower of Jesus Christ and as a member of His one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I consider it an honor and a blessing to teach at a school that proclaims the truth boldly and honors the authority of Holy Mother Church.  I am thankful that the Blessed Mother has placed me at RAA to partake in the New Evangelization and to build up the Civilization of Love.
