New Holy Trinity Catholic School principal looks to the future

February 8, 2012 by  

Holy Trinity Catholic School in Westmont has been an especially busy place recently due to staff and curriculum changes. Former Trinity teacher Nicole Noverini assumed the role of school principal as substantial modifications designed to enhance teaching and learning methods are being implemented.

Noverini says it’s an exciting time to be at Holy Trinity. Recent curriculum adjustments such as making learning a second language mandatory rather than elective, has improved student learning, according to Noverini. Students now spend one hour a day in math class that uses a new textbook.

Middle school students will soon begin using iPads in their classes each day. Making the most of technological advances has been one of Noverini’s primary goals since becoming principal last fall. Holy Trinity managed to raise more than $25,000 to make the iPads purchases possible.

Making Westmont residents more aware of the school and it’s improved curriculum is another of Noverini’s goals as principal. The school hosted a Westmont Chamber of Commerce event earlier this month during Catholic Schools Week. The event was designed to showcase Holy Trinity and its educational advances while providing a networking opportunity with the community, Noverini said.

Norverini was a teacher at the school for six years before being named principal. Stationery printers may run off new letterhead that updates Norverini’s new role at Holy Trinity. She admits she misses the day-to-day interaction with the students which isn’t possible as the principal. Norveini resides in Elmhurst. She is married with one child, who was born in September.
