Hello, my name is Mary Herboth. I am so happy to have the opportunity to serve the Saint Helena Catholic Community as your Principal.

Being a Catholic educator has been one of my greatest joys. I started in Early Childhood Education and taught preschool for five years. This experience was very helpful to me when I was a new mother. Later, I was drawn to elementary and then middle school students. I enjoyed teaching middle school because of the emerging intellect and natural curiosity about life that is so apparent in these years. I have a passion for Art and Poetry and enjoy incorporating these into the curriculum to enrich the classroom experience.

My own education includes graduating Magna cum laude with a Bachelor’ of Art degree in Theology from the Franciscan University of Steubenville, and receiving a Master of Art degree in Catholic Education from the University of Sacramento.

I’ve been married to my husband, Paul, for over 30 years. We have four wonderful young adult children. We look forward to many wonderful years, serving children and families in this beautiful valley.
