Personal Statement
I've always wanted to teach since I was a young child. I try to provide all my students with an educational environment that both stimulates and encourages learning and growth at any ability level. God called me to St. Mary one July day for a job and I feel blessed to be here.  I enjoy the St. Mary nurturing, caring and family atmosphere.
