Joseph Richard Purcella
I have been a professional educator in the catholic school environment for the past 19 years and have been at Saint Joseph Regional since 2010. I teach all levels of sophomore English with a concentration on classic American Literature. I have also been a high school football coach at the varsity level for over 22 seasons and is currently on the Lakeland Regional High School football staff serving as the offensive coordinator. I feel that teachers and students should experience the different elements that make up a positive catholic education: Faith, Hope, Academics, Enrichment, Athletics, and Trust between teachers and student.
