My 15 years in the Chicago Archdiocese has brought me a wealth of experiences, which has deepened and broadened my knowledge not just as an educator, but as a human being. Through challenges and triumphs, I've always found an emotionally and spiritually supportive community within the Catholic schools, no matter where I taught.
I began my career as a first grade teacher in Uvalde, Texas. I soon learned that I loved working with young children. My career continued in Chicago as a first grade teacher, Montessori teacher, preschool teacher and reading and math resource teacher. Happily, my GPS showed me the way through the winding roads to St. Mary in Riverside. I am thankful and blessed to be St. Mary's newest Kindergarten teacher among incredible staff and welcoming families. I'm dedicated to making this a memorable, safe and enjoyable year for the students in my care.
