Ms. Shea, who teaches Paschal Mystery and Morality, has taken on the class load left by Ms. Alison Frank, who is now serving as an elementary school principal.

Due to the departure of several teachers in the theology department last school year, Benilde-St. Margaret’s welcomed Claire Shea, a graduate of BSM, to fill in the position. Before coming to Minnesota, Ms. Shea taught Theology and English at Bishop Byrne High School in Memphis, Tennessee for four years, where she also served as their Dean of Mission. This year, Ms. Shea will teach both the Paschal Mystery and Morality classes for sophomores and juniors and also coach the BSM speech team, of which she is a former member. “This school has so many wonderful opportunities for its students, and I’m super excited to be a part of it,” Ms. Shea said.
