Welcome to the new year! My name is Mrs. Genna, and I am the 7th grade teacher. I also teach social studies and literature to the 8th grade students. I almost can’t believe that in my 13 years of teaching experience, this will be my 10th year at Santa Sophia Academy!

My journey with Catholic education started as a student at University of San Diego High School or Uni (now Cathedral). I have a BA in Liberal Studies and a minor in Sociology, and completed my Masters degree and credentialing at the University of California, Riverside.

My husband and I are about to hit our 12 year anniversary and I have 2 beautiful, vibrant daughters. We have made “our home” at Santa Sophia as parishioners for many years, and when I’m not involved with the Academy or the parish, I have really discovered my joy in the kitchen cooking up new recipes as well as spending time with my family.
