"Eleven years ago I began teaching at Schools of the Sacred Heart  in San Francisco. The goals and criteria of my school have been an inspiration since the beginning. Though my title is 5th and 6th grade math teacher, I consider my main responsibility  to challenge my girls to live lives that are more about others and less about themselves. I consider it a high honor to be included as an RSCJ Associate and to live out our mission to discover and make known the heart of Jesus."
- Brenda Davis, San Francisco Associate
