I teach 6th & 7th Grade Religion and 5th-8th Grade Science & Social Studies
Where I went to college, degrees that I have earned, and teaching experience:
I received a BS in Psychology from Loras College and a Certification in Paralegal Studies from Roosevelt University. At Calumet College, I earned a BA in Elementary Education and Historical Perspectives Endorsements. For 11 years I taught 7th Grade World History & 8th Grade US History and had previously done my student teaching in a self-contained 4th grade. I also spent four years as a substitute teacher right here at St. Ann, and was on the St. Ann School Board for a three-year term.
Why I love teaching:
As a disciple, I find great joy each day when I am able to enhance my students’ knowledge of the world and our faith.
What I love to do outside of school:
One of my very favorite things to do in the morning is sit on my deck with a cup of coffee and watch the birds, squirrels, and bunnies. I take a moment of peace, I breathe, give thanks, and energize for the day! My daughter, Casey, and my husband, Tony, and I love to do anything together! We are like the three bears 😉 I also enjoy going to the movies, shopping at resale stores, and traveling.
