7th Grade Reading and Language Arts

  • 7th Grade
Hello! I have been teaching at Holy Cross since 2011. The "Beacon on the Hill" is my home away from home. When I am not at school I spend my time with my husband and 3 children, a crazy dog, and two lazy cats. At home I usually have my nose in a book; however, I also enjoy doodling stories, pounding on the piano, clicking knitting needles, and digging in the dirt.
