Saint Joseph School Administration and Staff


Welcome to Saint Joseph School! We are a Catholic elementary school teaching Gospel values and offering a rigorous curriculum in preparation for a college prep high school in the Nashville area. We welcome Catholics and non-Catholics alike to experience our loving community with emphasis on high academic standards, technology integration, kindness to others and joy for life. For over 65 years Saint Joseph School has been serving students in the Dominican tradition. We are excited to have an opportunity to teach and educate your child, and we look forward to having you as part of the Saint Joseph School Family and Bulldog Nation.

Our Director of Instructional Programs has made it her mission to ensure that Saint Joseph School provides a rich Catholic school environment with a rigorous academic program. With a true passion for enriching students and nurturing the whole child, Ms. Eskert works closely with our teachers to ensure an atmosphere that supports superior forms of learning while expanding personal growth and self- confidence. She is motivated to make sure our students are engaged in purposeful learning and taught the value of being a life-long learner. “My philosophy in education is simple: create a positive learning environment while encouraging personal growth and empowering individual strengths.”
