Our Faculty & Staff

Rutherford Hayes, our country's nineteenth president once said: “Personally I do not resort to force—not even the force of law— to advance moral reforms. I prefer education, argument, persuasion, and above all, the influence of example.” Our teachers and staff agree; to lead by example sets the right tone for learning and much more. 

We are rooted in the teachings of the Church and are committed to a quality Catholic education. We address the spiritual, academic, social, and physical needs of our students in a caring atmosphere. Certified teachers and qualified staff teach by example, as much as they do by the presentation of material, to best prepare students for the larger world about them.

We have an excellent contingent of certified teachers and staff devoted to what they do every day. We seek excellence in your students only after we require excellence in our teachers.

About Pamela Rogers

My name is Pamela Rogers and I have been teaching at Holy Name School since 2008. I graduated from Bridgewater State College with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. I grew up in Swansea, MA and attended Joseph Case High School. I am married to my husband, David, and we have two children. My daughter graduated from Holy Name School and my son is presently a student here. My family is very important to me and I spend as much time with them as I can. This is one of the reasons why Holy Name School is the place for me. The family atmosphere at the school makes it inviting and where I want to be teaching. I am devoted to my students and try to do what I can to help them achieve their goals.

About Alicia Coelho

My name is Alicia Coelho. I live in the city with my husband and two children. When I’m home, I enjoy spending time with my family and love reading in my spare time. I have worked at Holy Name School for ten years as the pre-kindergarten assistant, and I truly enjoy my job. I believe the greatest gift I can give the students is a love of learning. I love seeing the children’s expressions when they are playing, or finally understand a new concept. I’m passionate about my job and enjoy listening to the children when they are sharing stories about their families. I believe this job was made for me, and I’m thankful for it!
