A Note from Mr. Fournie

Most of the time, you'll find me in the library fulfilling various roles, from assisting research projects to curating displays to coordinating our Virtual High School program. When I'm not working in the library, I'm teaching social studies, English, or publications.


For virtually my entire life, I've been involved in Catholic education, both as a student (pre-K through grad school) and as an educator (8 years in both middle and high school English and Social Studies). I'm incredibly grateful for the opportunity to serve the students of Delone Catholic.
