Mrs. Alicia Farren earned a Masters of Arts degree in Education, with dual Certification in General Education K-6 and Special Education K-12 from LaSalle University. Before entering the classroom, she served as Director of Institutional Advancement at John W. Hallahan Catholic Girls’ High School. Mrs. Farren's first few years as a classroom teacher were in the School District of Philadelphia. Following that, she worked for 10 years in Central Bucks School District in both regular education and special education classrooms. While in CBSD, she was appointed to the Principal’s Advisory Committee and served as the Special Education Facilitator. During the past two years, her role at StJP was to create and implement an Instructional Support Team. This experience, in particular, has allowed her to see all facets of the school. Mrs. Farren believes that the breadth and depth of her experience in education, being a parent of four StJP students, and her interaction with StJP faculty and staff provide her with the necessary foundation to help the school as the Principal.
