About Michael Sunderland
Michael Sunderland was born in Philadelphia and attended Jesuit schools for both high school and college: St. Joe's Prep in Philadelphia and College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. He has his Master's degree in English from Middlebury College in Vermont. Before coming to Cristo Rey, Michael spent seven years teaching 11th and 12th grade English at Red Cloud High School, a Jesuit school on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. Michael came to Cristo Rey because he is drawn to the school's mission and its Jesuit value of caring for the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Michael teaches Freshman English and runs the chess club and Health and Wellness Program.
