I attended Madonna University, where I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Mathematics and an Early Childhood Endorsement. I have been fortunate and blessed to be teaching at St. Joe’s for 19 years. As soon as I started here, I felt a connection to St Joe’s and a unique sense of community that exists among parents and staff. I love teaching Kindergarten. Some of my favorite times with my Kindergartners are watching them grow, seeing them build friendships with others, marveling at their creativity, and simply enjoying their play. I am married and have 3 grown children. I was also very lucky to be their Kindergarten teacher here at St. Joe’s. When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, being outside, watching and playing sports. I also love music and good movies.
