Mrs. Barbara Genera School Principal

I started my teaching career in 1968 after receiving my Bachelor of Arts degree through CA State University at Chico and my California teaching credential. I taught in the Public School system in Williams for a total of six years. I began teaching at Our Lady of Lourdes School when it reopened in 1978. I have taught almost all grade levels including preschool and prekindergarten during my teaching career. In 1987 I accepted the position as principal of Our Lady of Lourdes School. In the same year I enrolled in the Educational Administrator’s program at St. Mary’s College in Moraga and received by Masters Degree from St. Mary’s in 1990. I finished the final phase of the California Administrative Credential in May of 1993.

Our Lady of Lourdes School has been a part of my life for over forty years. I have dedicated myself to the school’s success both spiritually and academically. I enjoy each day interacting with the students. The student’s compassion and love for one another and for the staff have continued to inspire me each year. Our school continues to thrive because of parent participation. It is a joy each day to come to work and interact with the students, staff, and parents.
