Welcome to Nativity of Our Lord Catholic School

The philosophy of Nativity of Our Lord is based on a firm belief in the inherent dignity of each individual. Accordingly, ample opportunities for spiritual and intellectual growth are available to all students. Our philosophy of education also reflects an awareness on the part of the staff, of the diversity of economic, social, and cultural differences within the school community. September 25, 2020.

NEWS AND NOTES                                                   

Meet Mrs. Scott, Nativity's Third Grade Teacher!

Mrs. Scott began teaching at Nativity during the 2006-2007 school year in fourth grade to cover a maternity leave position. During the fall of 2007, she was hired as an 8th-grade homeroom teacher and to teach English Language Arts to sixth, seventh, and eighth-grade students. “My children were attending school at Nativity. I saw the wonderful things Sean, then a third-grader, and Julia, a first-grader, were learning and so I wanted to be a part of the teaching community.” 

   Mrs. Scott’s teaching experience began as a Kindergarten, then Second Grade Teacher in Pohatcong Township School, near Phillipsburg, NJ. Her husband’s career moves brought her family first to Connecticut and then to Orchard Park, NY. Since she began teaching at Nativity, Mrs. Scott had the opportunity to instruct various grade levels. While teaching Junior High, Mrs. Scott taught an after school writing class. She helped coordinate various fundraising activities for the eighth grade and organize and oversee the yearly Christmas Performance with Mrs. Gerri Zynda, the Junior High Literature teacher and  8th-grade homeroom teacher. “Mrs. Zynda was a fantastic mentor for me,” Mrs. Scott said. 

  From Junior High, Mrs. Scott taught Religion to first through fifth graders, taught second grade, and then third grade. While teaching Religion, Mrs. Scott researched and implemented a school-wide character education program.  She has been teaching third grade for nine years. “I love the enthusiasm of third graders, especially this year. My students seem genuinely happy to be back in school.” One of her favorite activities with her students has been running in the annual Nativity “Chase the Sun” 5k fundraiser. “It is a great way to teach important exercise habits and to have fun together outside of the classroom.” Mrs. Scott is grateful to teach in a supportive environment like Nativity School. “The parents, students, and my co-workers have been wonderful to me during my years here. I am proud to see our graduates go on to do amazing things with their lives.” Mrs. Scott lives in Orchard Park with Harold, her husband.  Sean is a senior studying Finance at Canisius College, and Julia is a sophomore studying Occupational Therapy at St. Joseph’s University and Thomas Jefferson University, both in Philadelphia.
