Sister Jacinta Ojilimmobe, a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur of the Nigerian Province, returned to Nigeria in June after an extended stay at the Mount Notre Dame convent in Cincinnati. While here, and before and during the pandemic, Sister Jacinta obtained a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration from Xavier University.

She also studied Montessori education, a philosophy of teaching and learning pioneered in Cincinnati by Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, in hopes of establishing more child-centered, practical and activity-oriented education in Nigeria.
