Catholic Schools Week Honoree


Perhaps the most devout and caring person in the building, yet she never calls attention to herself. She is the best example of a humble servant leader. She exemplifies the Nolan Catholic spirit of service with generosity and cheerfulness.

A product of Catholic schools, and proud graduate of Nolan’s Class of 1979, Mrs. Katy Rodriguez has taught for 20 years in Catholic, private, and public schools. “I am a firm believer in prayer, community, and strong academics,” she writes. “It is absolutely beautiful and fulfilling working with the students and helping them to find and achieve God’s purpose.  Math may be my vehicle, but eternal life in Christ is the goal.” The chair of the Math department, moderator for Students for Life, and Mu Alpha Theta Honor Society, Mrs. Rodriguez holds a BA in Mathematics from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio and a Master’s of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Mathematics from the University of Texas at Arlington.  Mrs. Rodriguez loves her family: her late husband Joe and children Anna ‘07, Mary ‘09, Joseph ‘11, and Maggie ‘16.

She is dedicated to her students and her colleagues. A wonderful person who has the best interest of her students at heart. She is always exploring ways to better not only her department but the school overall.
