Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester Catholic Schools have hired a new Director of Schools.

Haidee Todora is scheduled to report for work in June.

“It is with great excitement and enthusiasm that I accept the position as Director of Rochester Catholic Schools. My mission is to teach and model our Catholic faith while mentoring and guiding our youth. I vow to work with parents and staff to guide children on the path to holiness and attain Heaven! I look forward to working with my new RCS family to develop the unique gifts of each and every child. I am truly honored and accepting of God’s plan for me in this next phase of my life,” said Mrs. Todora.

A news release from the Rochester Catholic Schools says Todora holds a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology from the Lamar University and a Master Certification in Fitness and Human Performance from the University of Houston.
