I am passionate about educating the whole child...mentally, emotionally, physically, socially, and spiritually. Everyone of us has different strengths and it is so important to nurture them and appreciate our uniqueness and diversity. Jesus is the light of the world and I believe children are one of the best reflections of His light. Second grade is a wonderful year in Catholic school for many reasons, but especially because it is the year students receive the sacraments of First Confession and First Holy Eucharist. We are privileged to draw closer to God daily and grow together in faith, hope, and love throughout the year. I am fortunate to have attended this school from kindergarten through 8th grade and to have taught in Catholic schools for 18 years now. What a blessing!
