Favorite Quote: May the road rise to greet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rains fall softly on your fields, and until then, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.


A Chillicothe native and 2004 PND graduate, Mr. Girsch enjoys spending time with his children, completing various types of puzzles/puzzle books, and running. Mr. Girsch says that deep in his heart he always wanted to come back to PND and give back in some way, shape, or form. A few years after graduating from Bradley, he started coaching track and subbing daily at PND before understanding that feeling as a call to teach. Since returning to PND, Mr. Girsch has grown in his faith by learning how to pray more effectively, seeing prayer as a daily exercise that allows you to be in the presence of our Lord and build a better relationship with Him. His favorite aspects of PND are the daily presence of our Catholic faith, the camaraderie of the faculty, and the genuine humor and studiousness of the student body. Go Irish!
