Library and Curriculum Resource Specialist

Nora Murphy, FSHA’s librarian, created the Junior and Senior Research Projects, which are part of our four-year, college-level Research Program. Murphy’s goal is to support students with the academic transition from high school to college by giving them experience writing the types of papers they will be asked to write as soon as they enter college. “Our students are also in need of permission to take intellectual risks. It’s very scary for them to do that. They really want you to tell them the answer all the time. The research projects give them permission to take those risks.”

As an educator at FSHA, “I love being able to take intellectual risks all the time. Prior to coming here, I had to focus on living within a system and cope with a lot of obstacles. Here, I can get to the real work.”

Religion Teacher

During assemblies, you’ll often hear Tologs break into a certain chant, “D’Mello, D’Mello.” Beloved religion teacher Olympio D’Mello always gets a warm reception no matter where he goes. When he’s not teaching world religion, you can find him donning a silly wig for St. Patrick’s Day, coaching JV tennis or auctioning off his famous Indian dinner party at Gala. 

Mr. D'Mello sees much value in teaching world religion to his students. He says, "I have exposed my students to the world atlas, and to countries and religions they never heard of before. Learning about the world’s religions has helped the global village come to our doorstep. It is my hope that our Tologs are enriched by an academic grasp of and respect for world religions because the interdisciplinary study they engage in fosters deep intercultural literacy."
