Prior to having just been named principal at Holy Family Catholic School, Mrs. Girmus was the middle school science teacher, named assistant principal in 2010 and then Principal from 2014 – 2019 at St. Marks Catholic School in Vienna Virginia. With a combined 32 years of educational experience, she taught 17 years in a public school in Nebraska. In 2003, Mrs. Girmus and her family moved to Virginia from Nebraska where they literally “sold the farm” to fulfill her lifelong dream of teaching in a Catholic School. A graduate of the University of Nebraska, Mrs. Girmus holds degrees in elementary education, curriculum and instruction, and her most recent, Master of Education in Administration and Supervision is from Marymount University. Girmus and her husband Greg, are looking forward to joining our Holy Family Community as parishioners.
