Sister Rosemary Mckean is being recognized for her more than 30 years of service to Saint Christopher Catholic School and Parish in San Jose, California. Sister Rosemary established the special needs program at the school many years ago. The special needs program supports students who simply learn differently. Countless graduates attribute Sister Rosemary’s trained skill and kind heart to their success in the large classes at St. Christopher, their promotion to Catholic high schools, and their proficiency in fine colleges across the country. Indeed, Sister Rosemary touched many lives!
This summer, St. Christopher plans to transform the outdated computer lab into a center for specialized support and small group instruction. God willing, the Sister Rosemary McKean Learning Lab will open its doors in August of 2017 to support the vast array of students who require extra help, response to intervention, and leveled break-out groups.
Sister Rosemary retired this month and moved to the motherhouse in San Francisco.
