Social Studies, Reading

  • 7th Grade
Hi everyone! I am starting my eleventh year of teaching, the last nine of them have been at St. John's. I absolutely love teaching here and feel so blessed to be a part of this wonderful school and community. I feel at home in a Catholic school and sharing my faith with the students and within my content areas. I teach sixth, seventh, and eighth grade social studies as well as seventh and eighth grade English and reading. These are my favorite subjects to teach because I love stories, especially about the past. In addition, I'm responsible for coaching our Forensic team. During my free time, I like to spend time reading, shopping, and being with family and friends, especially my adorable dog Lucy.
