SMA is excited to add Sr. Katharine Rose to the teaching staff. A native of Phoenix, Arizona, Sr. Katharine Rose developed her love and appreciation for BBQ, country music, and Eucharistic Adoration while attending Benedictine College. She is excited to join the SMA community and return to the Kansas City area. She graduated with degrees in English and Secondary Education in 2014, just a few months before she joined the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist that year. She professed her first vows in 2017 and began teaching in Austin, Texas. She has a passion for teaching writing, both creative and academic. When she is not teaching, praying, or spending time with the sisters, you will usually find Sister playing volleyball or reading a good book.
