Welcome our new staff!
Dr. Barbara Monsegur, Principal
Ph.D., Catholic School Leadership, Catholic University of America
I am a seasoned Catholic school administrator, blessed to have attended CUA in Washington, D.C. I also hold a Masters in Bilingual Education. A native Arizonan born and raised in Winslow, AZ, I received my undergrad degree in secondary education from the University of Arizona. My free time is spent gardening, playing with Daisy, my dog, and sharing liturgy with my faith community remind me of God's countless blessings!
Stephanie Gaona, Theology Teacher
Master of Arts in Theology & Ministry from Boston College
I’m grateful to be back at St. A’s! I received a Bachelor of Arts in Catechetics and Theology from Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio. Following graduation, I served a missionary year with NET ministries before teaching theology at St. A’s for six wonderful years. While teaching at St. A’s I earned a Master of Arts in Theology & Ministry from Boston College. I left St A’s in 2018 to get a taste of parish ministry and worked at St. Mark Catholic Church in Oro Valley as the Director of Religious Education. In the time I was away, I married my husband Daniel and welcomed two sons, D. J. and Joseph. I am so thankful that God brought me back to St. Augustine and am looking forward to this school year.

Hi everyone! I'm a part of the Magis Program through Creighton University, studying to receive my MA in Secondary Ed. I'm from a small rural town in central Massachusetts and went to undergrad. at Saint Anselm College (St. A's!!!) which is a Catholic, Benedictine school in Manchester, NH.

Brandon Witherspoon, Athletic Director/PE
B.S. in Movement Science and Psychology, Grand Valley State University
Hello! I’m super excited to be joining St. Augustine this upcoming school year as the new Athletic Director and PE Teacher. I’m originally from Grand Rapids, MI where I attended Grand Valley State University and received my degree in Teaching. After teaching five years in the district in which I graduated high school, I was given the opportunity to relocate and teach here in Tucson. Most recently I taught High School Sports Medicine & Physical Education. This will mark my 11th year of teaching and 6th year living in Tucson. I am eager to begin working with all the individuals that make St. A’s the special place that it is which includes staff, students, athletes, coaches and the community members. May this be our best year yet! Go Wolves!
