Andy has spent his entire career in Catholic secondary education; 10 years as a teacher and then 10 years as a principal. As a proud PM alum, Class of 1995, he passionately believes that Marianist education is not only important to our students but to the human spirit. “Through Marianist education, we are helping our students discover their God-given talents and creating the next generation of justice seekers, servant leaders, and peacekeepers who can adapt to changing world.”
He says that being at Purcell Marian feels like the “family business” to him and has little time for hobbies, choosing to put his energy into all things Purcell Marian, instead. He has been married to his wife, Lindsay, also a PM ’95 graduate and staff member, for 17 years and has two children, Olivia and Rachel. The Farfsings love to travel in their RV and discover the beautiful country. Andy’s favorite place they’ve visited so far is Kennebunkport, Maine, and says they have plans to take a trip out West next summer.
Fun fact you may not know: Andy was a cheerleader at Xavier University. Go Muskies!
