Welcome back to St. John Catholic School!

My name is Alexandra Iwaszewicz and I have served the Archdiocese of San Francisco since January 2013 at St. John School. I began as a long term substitute in 2nd grade and then moved to 4th grade. In 2018, I became an Assistant Principal and then was named the Interim Principal in February 2020.

I earned my Bachelor of Arts, multiple-subject credential, and Master’s degree from St. Mary’s College of California. My teaching philosophy and outlook on education is strongly rooted in the Lassalian and Ursuline principles due to my education at St. Mary’s and subsequent work at St. John School.

My mission is aligned with the mission of St. John School. It is to prepare each student for a rapidly changing world by empowering them to become individuals of integrity, critical thinkers, and courageous leaders for the good of all. I am very grateful for the opportunity to lead the St. John School community as the Principal for the 2020-2021 school year.

To help inform the St. John community and communicate important news, Ms. I. provides regular updates for parents, guardians and students.

Somehow we are already at the end of January. So much has happened in our small community. I would like to begin by welcoming our new families to St. John School. We have had five new students join our wonderful small community in January. (K & 3) If you have students in kindergarten or third grade, please take the time to reach out to our new families and welcome them. Read more…
