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 Lasallian 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 2023-2024 school year.

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

We are delighted to welcome many new families to St. John School again this year. Have questions? We have a New Families FAQ page created just for you (although all our families may find it helpful). As you learn about new students in your child(ren)’s class(es), please take the time to welcome them!

The first day of school will be an orientation day for all of our students. Our  school protocols and procedures, including safety instructions, will be covered that day. During the first few weeks of school, teachers will focus on building a class community by helping our students feel engaged and comfortable. Read more…
