Mrs. Byrnes believes that a Catholic
Education is the best gift any child can receive,
particularly a St. Joseph Education. During her ministry as
a Catholic educator, she has taught all grades from
Kindergarten through Eighth, in the Archdiocese of
Philadelphia and the Diocese of Harrisburg. She first taught
at St. Joseph School in 1986 as a substitute teacher. In
1995, she became the Fifth and Sixth Grade Science teacher,
especially loving Environmental Science. In 2000, Mrs.
Byrnes became the Vice Principal. In 2002 she was named the
Principal of St. Joseph School. Her favorite task as
principal is leading students in prayer and liturgy. Seeing
students grow in their sacramental lives is such a blessing.
Mrs. Byrnes is always proud of the achievements of our
faculty and students. Wonderful things are happening in SJS
classrooms every day! We are so pleased with the Renovation
project of 2006, and most grateful to all donors who have
made this dream a reality for the children of St. Joseph.
Mrs. Byrnes offers daily prayers for the faculty, students
and families of St. Joseph School and Parish. Mrs. Byrnes
enjoys living in York County, with her loving husband and
children. Her hobbies are reading, sewing, and walking.
Family activities keep the Byrnes clan quite busy. Her
patron saints are St. Joseph, St. Patrick, and the Blessed
Please feel free to contact Mrs. Byrnes
