Our Principal

 Hello, I am Sister Daniela Bronka, the Principal of St. Bede School. I was born and raised in southern Poland – yes, POLAND!
 
Soon after taking my first vows, I worked in one of the preschools in Krakow as an assistant teacher while studying for my degree in education. In 1999, I was sent to Kiev-Ukraine and worked as a CCD director for two years. After taking my final vows in 2000 I was sent to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA! In Philadelphia I received my BA in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. For seven years I taught 4th grade in a local elementary school while working on my Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership with a Principal certification. After 13 years of living, studying and working in Philadelphia, I was once again reassigned — to Pittsburgh! My first assignment in my new hometown was serving as Principal of St. Bernard School in Mount Lebanon. And next, in the summer of 2018, I was selected by leaders of both the School and Parish to join St. Bede School as Principal.
 
I am thrilled to be a part of St. Bede for so many reasons…perhaps, most of all, the wonderful environment. We have a joyful community based upon the core belief we are ALL one family TOGETHER. Each day it is such a privilege to work with, and be with children as they grow, learn and develop…building a foundation essential to each St. Bede graduates happy, faithful, healthy, successful and good life!

"St. Bede is a warm and welcoming community. We are extremely pleased with our daughter’s progress at the school."
