Miss Victoria Bonutti
English 10 & Grammar 9 Teacher and Literary Arts Club & Swing Dance Society Adviser
Miss Bonutti received her M.A. in English Literature and Language at The Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., in 2015, specializing in medieval and nineteenth-century literatures. She received her B.A. in English and Theology, with a minor in Philosophy, from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2013. A major part of her undergraduate education was spent studying abroad, both at Franciscan University’s campus in Gaming, Austria, and at the University of Oxford in England.
In her own words: “As Pope Paul VI stated in Evangelii Nuntiandi, ‘Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses’ (41). As a practicing Catholic and educator, I believe that those who teach are first witnesses, both to the faith they believe and the significance of the subject they teach. Seton is an environment in which I can fully witness to the faith I love and profess, and where I can be an example to my students, share my passion for literature and words, and engage in meaningful ways with the faculty, staff, and parents, doing my part to build up the kingdom of God.”

Dr. Beth Carpenter
Dr. Carpenter received her PhD in Emerging Infectious Diseases at the Uniformed Service University of the Health Science in Bethesda, MD. She received her BS in Biochemistry at The Catholic University of America in Washington, DC. She is an Associate Adjunct Professor at the University of Maryland University College in Adelphi, MD since 2012. In her own words: “I have had an interest in science and nature from the time I was little. My favorite questions were “why” and “what is that”. It was not surprising that I went to school to pursue a degree in science. CUA was my first foray into a Catholic school, and I loved that it was a place where the faith was used to enlighten and inspire our studies. It was there that I came to appreciate the harmony that can be found between what we know by faith and what we know by reason. Science and religion are not at odds with one another! My work in graduate school with microorganisms continued to have me marvel at creation. The dedication in my doctoral thesis reads “To the good God, who saw fit to give humankind both heart and mind to know Him and His creation, may this work be pleasing unto You”, and it the perfect summary for how I approach science education. It is my desire to help my students not just learn chemistry but to appreciate how scientific knowledge can draw us closer to our Lord.”

Math is how we communicate and come to know God’s amazing creation. It is a tool that allows us to explain what is happening in the world around us and better understand how we can interact with it. God’s creation is not random but ordered, intricate, and always unfolding”. Vickie also holds a Master Catechist Certification from the Diocese of Arlington. She is blessed to be at Seton, a place where the Holy Spirit abounds.
