Mr. Sal Lagonia

I have the honor of teaching science and mathematics at St Jude. I was born in The Bronx, NY and have been in The Cincy area for 3 years now, and my family and I have felt nothing but welcome the whole time. I have been teaching for 14 years, coming to teaching after The Church recruited me from the private sector, and I have never been happier than when I am in front of a classroom. I graduated from Mercy College with a BS in Criminal Justice and I hold Masters degrees in Intermediate Education and Economics. I am also working on a Doctoratein Psychology. When I am not engaged in my passion for teaching, I am following my passion for baseball, where I still play as often as I can, or spending time with my three boys.
