I’m happy to be back at St. Joe’s for my second year! I’m originally from Washington, D.C. and have also lived in Colorado, Montana, and Arizona. I have a BA in psychology from Georgetown University and an M.Ed. with a concentration in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from the University of Mary.
In my classroom, I encourage the middle school students to ask the big questions: Who made me? Why am I here? What effect do the answers to these questions have on my choices today and in the future? As the students prepare for success in high school, I challenge them to grow in self-awareness, to participate in self-assessment, and to learn self-advocacy as they reach their academic and personal goals.
My most serious responsibility as a Catholic school teacher is assisting parents in the formation of their children as disciples of Jesus Christ. This consists in being a joyful and caring witness, insisting on virtuous behavior inside and outside of the classroom, and allowing my students the freedom to enter into an intimate relationship with God.
