The 2018-2019 school year will be my 24th year of teaching first grade in the Catholic schools. I have spent the past 19 years at St. Jude! I feel extremely blessed that I was given the opportunity to spend 10 days on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land during the summer of 2017. That remarkable journey has helped me to be able to share my knowledge and love of Jesus on a daily basis in my classroom. I graduated from Walsh University in 1992 with a BA in Elementary Education and later obtained my K-12 Reading Endorsement from Mount Saint Joseph University in 1996. My husband Andy and I have been married for 26 years and have three wonderful children.
