I have been teaching second grade for 25 years at St. Veronica. I received my BA in education from the College of Mount St. Joseph and my M. Ed. from Xavier University. I hold a K-8 license and reading K-12 endorsement. I am a former St. Veronica student. I was in the first fourth grade class. I believe that an educator should empower and respect each child to be the best he/she can be and help him/her be a positive influence in the world. Watching the students grow spiritually while learning about the sacraments continues to be one of my most rewarding experiences during the school year. In addition to teaching, I enjoy playing volleyball and watching my favorite sports teams. I reside in Mt. Carmel with my husband Andy, our two sons and two dogs.
