I welcome the 2018-2019 academic year with excitement in a fifth year of teaching at St. John the Baptist School! It is with genuine joy that I bring love for academics to the classroom, reaching the minds and hearts of students eager to learn. Whether I am traveling near or far, visiting a park or museum, reading or watching a documentary, I am always thinking of ways to share science with my students. Even while spending my favorite moments of relaxation with my husband on the fishing boat, I witness the mysteries of science that surround us. Having our own two children experience Catholic education at Resurrection in Allouez and Notre Dame Academy, my husband and I firmly believe that integrated faith education has supported both our son and daughter as they begin to carve their future as young adults. In addition to helping children grow through discoveries made in science, I feel blessed to spiritually guide them in faith as well.
