Ms. Tersigni, who has a daughter who is an alumna, said what she loves most about teaching at IHA is the strong sense of community among the faculty, staff, and students. "Immaculate Heart Academy works to guide young women to grow academically, spiritually, and morally," she said. "Working at IHA gives me a daily breath of fresh air in my very busy world of teaching and raising three children. The faculty are among the most talented and are truly invested in their vocation as educators; I’m proud to be among them."
