I joined the Holy Cross Catholic School teaching staff in 2004 beginning in first grade and looped up with a class to second grade three year later. The move UP was a good move. I have the honor to assist students and their parents in the preparation for two special sacraments during the second grade year. Holy Cross Catholic School has been involved in the field of education since 1868. The SCHOOL is celebrating its 150th anniversary during this school year I am proud to be a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross, the community that along with Fr. Edward Daems opened this school on February 12, 1868. What a marvelously LONG history of growing and developing into what we are today. What excites me most about teaching are the many surprising moments throughout the year observed in the students progress, and the AHA moments that surprise everyone! I enjoy spending time with Community members, family, and friends. My TV favorites are NCIS, Scorpion, Jeopardy, and staying current with news of the day.
