This is my third year at St. Joseph School as one of the middle school English Language Arts and Reading teachers. I will have a seventh grade homeroom this year, and I will also teach my homeroom religion and vocabulary.

My first year of teaching was at Sacred Heart School in Lombard where I taught middle school language arts, religion, and social studies. Before that I earned my undergraduate degree in English at the University of Notre Dame. I received my teaching certification through St. Mary’s College. I have lived in this diocese all my life and received a wonderful education from St. Joan of Arc in Lisle, where I am still a parishioner, and Naperville North High school.

Outside of school, I enjoy reading, playing piano, and singing at my parish as a cantor. Teaching at a Catholic school is something I have always wanted to do, and I am grateful for all the blessings it has given me.
