Some new De La Salle staff and supporters attend a barbecue at start of school year: Daniel Maher, Sarah Maher, Katie Worsdale, Megan Short, Kat Merry and Tony Rivera.

Tim Joy, principal of De La Salle North Catholic High School in North Portland, established “Unity” as the theme for the school year with a passage from Phillipians, which reads, in part, “complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind.”

The school serves low-income urban students with a college-preparatory education and an integrated work study program. Meanwhile, staff and student body are characterized by diversity — in racial, ethnic, and even spiritual backgrounds.

At a retreat to start the year, the staff explored the theme, set a positive tone for the upcoming year, kept a tradition of reading the names of each new De La Salle student out loud, and welcomed new members. De La Salle has six new full-time faculty and staff: three Lasallian Volunteers two teachers, and an enthusiastic “lunch lady.”   

Jamie Bell, a new physics/physical science teacher, came to teaching circuitously. She began in science as a biochemistry graduate researcher studying proteins, then taught math and science courses in McCall and Idaho City, Idaho. She came across De La Salle via a Portland State program description and simply, “fell in love with the mission.”

Michael Napoli, the new chemistry/physical science teacher, taught most recently at Rosemary Anderson High School in Portland. He joined De La Salle to inspire students to pursue science, technology and engineering degrees in college. He wants to “give graduates the job security needed to propel them to financial stability.”

Kathryn “Kat” Merry is a new La Sallian Volunteer, working as a coordinator in the school's corporate internship program. She went to Manhattan College, earning a degree in psychology and education. “Moving from East to West has been a shock, but I can tell that the communities I have joined in Portland and at De La Salle are a rare find,” Merry says.

Tony Rivera, a new LaSallian Volunteer who will also be working in the internships office, attended Valley Catholic High School and graduated from the University of Notre Dame where he majored in history. He speaks English and Spanish and last year served a seven-week internship at Cristo Rey School in New York.  

Another new LaSallian Volunteer, Katie Worsdale, graduated from St Mary's College of California with a degree in health and human performance. She will be working in the Lasallian Youth Ministry office as the coordinator of student activities. “I look forward to having a unique story to tell in the future, knowing that I am a part of something much bigger than myself,” Worsdale says.  

Patty Fletcher, cook and food program manager, is excited to return as a full-time staffer after helping out in the kitchen last year. A new grandmother, she is glad to have a cafeteria full of kids to enjoy each day.
