About Mary Ann McQueen

Mary Ann McQueen is originally from Seattle, Washington where she attended Catholic schools grades 1-12. Deciding to attend Santa Clara University in the Bay Area ended up leading to permanent residency in California, something that still surprises Mrs. McQueen but that delights her as well. Mary Ann’s teaching career began in college where she completed two teaching internships and then continued after college at various schools in the Bay Area and in Southern California, especially Marymount High School in Westwood. Mrs. McQueen loves teaching and working with students of all ages and has had numerous positions that include direct work in the classroom, especially teaching American history. In addition to working with students, much of Mrs. McQueen’s career has involved serving as a school leader and she earned her masters degree in educational leadership from Loyola Marymount University in 1994. As a parent volunteer, Mrs. McQueen undertook some significant fundraising projects and served as president of the parent association at St. Paul the Apostle Elementary School in Westwood where her two sons attended school. Mrs. McQueen met her husband, Murray, at Santa Clara University and they have been married for twenty-five years.

Mary Ann loves to travel, spend time with family (including seven brothers and sisters and twenty-four nieces and nephews), friends, and meet with her reading group which she began twenty years ago. Working out with friends, walking at the beach or just about anywhere in the world, reading voraciously and going to the movies and theater are all ways that Mary Ann likes to spend her time when she is not at work. Mrs. McQueen enjoys being principal at St. Mark School and the vibrant community that includes a talented and dedicated faculty and staff as well as over two hundred amazing students who inspire her each day to focus on their learning and development, including their spiritual growth, as young people of faith who will make a difference in the world.
