Work Experience:     This is my twenty-second year of teaching, all in the primary grades.    I have 5 years' experience teaching kindergarten, eight years' experience teaching first grade, and this is now my ninth consecutive year teaching second grade.    I began my teaching career at Marais des Cygnes Valley Schools in Melvern, Kansas.   I also have eight years of experience in the Shawnee Mission School District at Westwood View, Shawanoe, and John Diemer Elementary Schools.    I also taught for five years at Ascension Catholic School in Overland Park.    These last seven years have been at Holy Trinity and I'm so blessed to be here.   I'm also an active parishioner here at Holy Trinity, and two of my three daughters have already graduated from HTS.   
Teaching Philosophy:  It is my vocation to help children develop their God given talents and abilities.    It is a humbling privilege and responsibility to help guide all children in their faith life and on their journey to Heaven.   
Passions & Interests:  I love my alma mater and their athletics programs, and purple is very much my favorite color.  My daughters are involved in many activities and I enjoy attending their CYO and Aquinas events.   When I have more time in the summer, I enjoy reading.
Favorite Scripture:  Romans 8:28 "We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose."
