Mission Grammar is all about the family
Ms. T, Natacha, has been part of the Mission Grammar Family for the past 13 years. She first learned about Mission through her God son and cousins who attended Mission Grammar. When her son’s school closed, she and her family wanted to continue her son’s Catholic education and she knew that Mission Grammar was a place with a strong sense of community.
During her son’s time at Mission, she experienced a strong sense of family. Teachers advocated for her son, seeing his academic strengths and recommending enrichment programs for him. After Mission, her son continued his education at Brimmer and May and then attended Brown University. At Brown, he studied biomedical engineering and now works at a biotech firm just outside of Boston. Beyond science, he loves art and drawing, planning trips with friends and spending time with family.
Ms. T’s time at Mission Grammar started after her son graduated. She began working at MG, running the afterschool program and then moved into teaching in the Early Childhood program. She was part of the first cohort of teachers to be trained through Mission Grammar’s partnership with the Lynch Foundation. She is now a lead K1 teacher and has become an integral part of the Mission Grammar community. Since her son was a scholar until today, she continues to see how families are connected with the school. Teachers weave families into their child’s education in a way that creates a community unlike other schools. “You can see why generations have and continue to come to Mission Grammar, this is more than a job or a school- it’s a family.”
