Miss Hogan is honored to be the Principal of St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School. She has been an educator since 2003 after earning her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education from Bradley University and Masters in Teaching and Leadership at St. Xavier University. She is currently completing her principal preparation program at Illinois State University.

St. Vincent de Paul is home to Miss Hogan in more ways than one. Not only has she spent her entire educational career here at St. Vincents, but she has been a parishioner since birth which gives her a very special love for St. Vincent de Paul. She often says that St. Vincent de Paul has become a part of her.

All of Miss Hogan’s tasks center on making the love of Jesus present and promoting the academic, social, emotional, and spiritual growth of students, faculty and staff. She loves to lead others to a greater relationship with Jesus and help people to find their God-given potential.  All of her daily tasks flow from, and are pointed to, her sacrifice at daily Mass and receiving Jesus in the Eucharist. That is most central to her life!

Miss Hogan believes that God has called her to spiritual motherhood to the students, teachers and families He entrusts in her care. With that in mind, she strives to make our school a place in which each student can encounter the love of Christ and the beauty and goodness of the Catholic Church, a place where each person finds a sense of belonging.

You might find her laughing or even dancing and singing with students and teachers as she believes that joy is a true expression of a Christian.

When she is not serving the school needs, you most likely will find Miss Hogan cooking. She loves to entertain guests at a meal she prepares and has a standing Sunday dinner she makes for her closest of friends. You might also find her spending time with one of her many nieces and nephews as she upholds her title as “favorite aunt”!

Miss Hogan knows that we have a unique mission here at SVdP to help students become the saints they are called to be. She often says, “We are in the business of making saints here at St. Vincent de Paul!” So let’s get to the making!
