Spotlight on Alumni


Alexandra Galli - Class of 2016

I am teaching kindergarten at Saint Mary School in Shrewsbury, Massachusetts. This is my hometown and home parish, so I am extremely happy to be here! On the interview, I felt so comfortable answering the academic questions because of the mock interviews and amazing student teaching experience. However, I later found out that the faith-based questions made me stand out from the other candidates as well, and I was able to answer them without hesitation because of my Catholic liberal arts education.


Molly Frost - Class of 2015

Since graduating from St. A's in 2015, I have slowly been making my way across the country teaching! Right out of school, I committed to doing a year of service teaching at The David School, which is an alternative high school in eastern Kentucky. After leading a SBA trip through Campus Ministry to The David School my senior year of college, I decided to go back for a year to teach Math and Science. Being an Elementary Education major, that year was full of challenges and growth. I enjoyed my time there immensely but knew at the end of the year that Elementary Education truly has my heart. I moved home to Bandera, Texas and was hired on at Hill Country Elementary School as a first grade teacher. The past month working with these students has been wonderful! I am so thankful to be an alum of such a wonderful Education program that prepared me for all of my adventures so far!


Briana Jones - Class of 2015

After graduating, I spent a year as a Teaching Fellow for Promise Academy I Middle School in Harlem, New York, where I taught 6th Grade Science and 7th grade Math. In the Fall of 2015 I moved to Boston, Massachusetts  and became a Kindergarten Teaching Fellow at KIPP Academy Boston Elementary. KIPP:MA is part of a non-profit national network of college-preparatory, public charter schools serving elementary, middle and high school students.  We  prepare students in educationally underserved communities for success in college and life. For the 2016-2017 school year, I am currently working as a Kindergarten Lead Teacher and Grade-Level Chair for KIPP Academy Boston Elementary.


Alexandra (Alex) Odegaard, class of 2014

After graduation, 2014, I moved to Memphis, TN to join the LANCE (Lasallian Association of New Catholic Educators) Program at Christian Brothers University. While working towards my Master of Education, I lived in a community with other members of the program and taught 5th grade at De La Salle Elementary School. This school is a part of the Jubilee School Network, a system of previously closed urban Catholic schools reopened to ensure that all students have the opportunity to succeed. After graduating in May, I decided to stay in Memphis and continue to teach 5th grade at the same wonderful school.

Richard Manzi, class of 2013
Classroom to Classroom
Richard Manzi may have thought graduating from Saint Anselm meant leaving behind a supportive, tight-knit community; little did the rookie teacher realize that his first job at Nativity Preparatory School in New Bedford, Mass., would provide him with an environment just as helpful and welcoming.

Christopher Tebo, class of 2012

After graduating from Saint Anselm's in 2012 I found a position teaching history in the Social Studies department at Spaulding High School in Rochester, New Hampshire. I arrived at a time when the district was in the midst of a transition to competency based instruction. Through this shift I was able to take on a number of leadership roles and work with amazing schools around the state looking at ways to integrate technology into class curriculum in a way that would support proficiency grading and blended learning. Last year, I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to present my work at the Christa McAuliffe Regional Technology Conference in Manchester. I recently finished my Masters Degree in Educational Administration and have accepted an Associate Principal position at Belmont High School, Belmont, New Hampshire. None of this would have been possible without my time on the Hilltop! The high expectations, the rigorous curriculum, and the incredibly supportive faculty and staff really prepared me for my career in Education. Go Hawks!

Danielle (Waldrupe) Doyle

Danielle (Waldrupe) Doyle, class of 2010

Since graduating from Saint A's in 2010, I have been happily teaching at Trinity High School in Manchester. As a brand new teacher, I became as involved as I could in the school community. I advised the Pioneer yearbook for two years, attended class retreats, cheered on Trinity's athletic teams, and truly found a home among the 400 young men and women. Seven years and hundreds of students later, I am the English Department Chairperson, and the co-adviser of Trinity's chapter of the National Honor Society.


Nicole (Conti) Canney- class of 2005

I graduated from St. Anselm in 2005 with an English BA and minor (certificate at the time) in secondary education. After graduation, I started working at Pinkerton Academy in Derry, NH, which is where I still am; I am on my 12th year here at Pinkerton. I have taught grades 9-12 as well as all the different levels, and I am currently teaching all seniors, including Advanced Placement Language and Composition. In 2014 I was recognized with the Pinkerton Academy Student Council Teacher of the Year award as well as the Pinkerton Academy Shepard Faculty Award. I was a 2017 NH Teacher of the Year finalist. I am currently pursuing my M.Ed in Curriculum Instruction with a concentration on Education Leadership. I believe in modernizing teacher pedagogy to keep up with 21st century education reform by maintaining a student-centered classroom. I am an advocate for competency-based grading and inquiry-based learning as part of a student-centered classroom.
