I have been blessed to teach in Catholic education for 17 years. My experience includes kindergarten through second grade. I have loved being a part of a community that can make a difference in a child's life intellectually and spiritually. As each year presents challenges for all of us, we remember the many opportunities to improve, grow, and learn!
Each child is a gift from God. As I look into their hearts, I strive to teach to each child's individual needs and style. It is so worth the time and energy to look for how and why each child learns. For the child and myself it makes the days full of fun, excitement, discovery, and contentment! The whole child is present in class each day and deserves to be taught as such.
I have the distinct honor to be part of the field of education.
