Began teaching in 1984.
Teaching at Holy Family since 1998.

What I love about teaching science at Holy Family School:
I have always enjoyed learning new things and teaching science and all the exciting changes in this field has certainly kept me on my feet. I look forward to bringing new materials and new ideas to my students. I believe in the adage, “The one who does the teaching is the one who’s doing the learning.” I have had the privilege of “learning” at Holy Family School for many years now and I appreciate the support of both the school and parents along the way.

Why I became a teacher:
I became a teacher because I wanted to change children’s lives. I wanted children to reach their full potential, to become confident independent learners. I wanted each child to leave my room understanding their unique learning style and to learn to believe in themselves. In the years that have followed, I have realized how much my students have taught me. They have changed my life and I am forever grateful.

Favorite Scripture Verse:
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46
