“All students should be given opportunities to learn in ways that are beneficial to their individual learning style and about topics and concepts that spark their interests. It is important to vary curriculum material to incorporate individual interests.”
Personal and Professional Background
Butler Catholic School was my first full-time teaching job, and I am now in my eighth year of teaching at Butler Catholic School. I was born and raised in Brookville, PA, where I attended Brookville Area Schools.
After deciding I would like to become a teacher, I chose Slippery Rock University to continue my education. I graduated from SRU with Summa cum laude honors and received elementary, early childhood, middle school math and middle school English teaching certificates. I continued my education at Slippery Rock University where I recently completed my Master’s Degree in Special Education.
When I am not in the classroom, I love spending time with my husband, our two daughters, and our families.
I also enjoy painting, exercising, or relaxing with a good book. I am a member of St. Peter Parish in Slippery Rock, and my favorite prayer is the Nicene Creed because I proclaim all that I believe in as a Catholic.
What Do You Feel Makes Butler Catholic Special?
What I feel especially benefits the students at BCS are the small class sizes. I find, as a teacher, I am able to work one-on-one with students to ensure they are each working to the best of their ability.
Working with the students of Butler Catholic has been such a positive experience. I look forward to many more years at this school, and I believe Butler Catholic will continue to grow well into the future. With the rising enrollment and positive community and family support it will continue to provide the quality education it has since 1969.
