I first taught at an alternative high school. I have been at St. Isidore School since the fall of 2000.

What do you like about teaching?
Every day is new and interesting! Middle school students are inquisitive and entertaining, so I am constantly learning new things with them. Teaching at St. Isidore School is wonderful because the families are supportive and the faculty is sincerely motivated to help each student succeed. We really are a community, and that makes teaching here enjoyable.

Tell us about your Hobbies & Interests
Some things I enjoy are baking, reading, working outside, taking walks, spending time with my family, and watching the Phillies. I am also a lector at church, and I really enjoy seeing students from school at Mass.
