As a young SNDdeN, Sister Georgi taught elementary classes in schools in Salinas, Santa Clara, Covina and Honolulu. While at Holy Family School in Hawaii, she learned about school administration from Sr. Noreen Cain, then principal of the school. Later this learning would be put to good use at several California schools including ten years as principal at Notre Dame School in Santa Barbara. Sr. Georgi confesses, “I never wanted to go into school administration, but I realized I’d didn’t need to change who I was. I’m still just me, but now in charge.”
During the ‘90s she also used her administration skills with the “I Have a Dream” program at the James Flood School in Menlo Park. Despite overwhelming odds, many of the children she worked with are now in college and still keep in contact.
Beginning in 2003, Sister Georgi was principal at Resurrection School in Sunnyvale. “Peace is the umbrella we live out here. I tell each child, ‘You don’t need to like everybody, but you do need to be respectful of each person.’” She stepped down from that job to serve on the California Leadership Team, and is now is one of the co-coordinators for the Sisters in the in the US East-West West group.
Sr. Georgi shares, “I am really blessed and I know it!”
