“I enjoy incorporating hands-on activities into my teaching lessons. The more the children do themselves the more they remember and retain what they are taught.”
Personal and Professional Background
I have been teaching for 28 year for the Diocese of Pittsburgh, and at Butler Catholic School since 2000. I currently teach all the art classes for grades 4 – 8, as well 5th grade Reading, 4th and 5th grade Social Studies. I graduated from Edinboro University with a B.S. in Elementary Education with a concentration in Reading and Social Studies.
My husband Chris and I have two grown children, Angelina and Eli. We live in Sarver with our two dogs, two cats, and Sun Conure named Birdie.
Outside of teaching I love to craft, and spend time with my family.
My home parish is St. Mary’s in Freeport, and I have a special devotion to Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Fatima.
What Do You Feel Makes Butler Catholic Special?
I enjoy learning and deepening my faith with the students and families at Butler Catholic School. The family atmosphere entices you to become a part of this community. It is a wonderful place to work. Every day is filled with caring students, invaluable parents and great teaching.
