Holy Spirit is a wonderful school! It`s been our family`s home for the past 12 years!! We`re incredibly happy and blessed with kind teachers, challenging curriculum, and most importantly, a Christ-centered environment. Our 4 children each began their education in pre-K 4 with the most loving and patient Mrs Kimball, and we have been just as impressed with each grade level, every single year that passes! Our 2 oldest are now in advanced classes in high school, which they were more than prepared for after completing middle school at Holy Spirit.

My children have attended HSCS since pre-K and are now in the 8th grade. I love this school! The teachings of our faith are in practice every day, throughout the day. The teachers and staff take the time to know every family; it`s a genuine concern. The children are challenged and encouraged academically. They will be well prepared to enter high school.

Hello my name is Kevin Fitzpatrick, I just moved to Jacksonville from California in April. I was able to substitute teach in Duval County. In the last 16 years, I have had the opportunity to work with people of all ages and abilities while managing a grocery store and while substitute teaching in both Florida and California. Both my parents are retired school teachers and coaches, so teaching has always been an integral part of my life. My desire is to utilize my gifts of teaching, mentoring, and coaching in a Christian environment, where God is the foundation. I would be grateful to be considered for any position at your school. My resume can be emailed if needed. If I can provide you with any further information on my background and qualifications, please let me know. References are also available upon request. I can be reached at 559-999-9837 or via email at 26kevfitz@gmail.com. I would welcome an interview and hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience.
