About Myself

I love photography and gardening. Before I was a teacher, I was an administrative assistant at L'Oréal products and a stay-at-home Mom.

I decided to become a teacher at the young age of 5. As a catechist, I want to teach children how Jesus shares God's life with us.

I participate in Women’s English Emmaus and I am a Eucharist Minister at OLOL.

I teach my students Faith, Hope, Charity, Courage and Honesty.

Outside of Jaguars

I love spending time with my family. I enjoy cooking for them.

We have two daughters in High School and a son in the University. We also have a Jack Russel named Milo and a fish tank with 13 fish.

I enjoy making jewelry, cooking and boating with my family.

I love Christmas!

Jaguar Memories

  • I love to watch my students grow in faith year after year.
  • I am inspired when our Second Graders receive their First Holy Communion every year.
  • I miss going to Chapel after school with the Children of the Blessed Sacrament. We would spend twenty minutes in Adoration.
  • I also miss Mrs. Plummer and Mrs. Bondone, two amazing teachers.
  • My favorite project is " Our Lenten Promises" when students outline their journeys through Lent.
