I joined the faculty of St. I in the fall of 2002. All my teaching experience is in Catholic schools. I have taught first through eighth grades, although the bulk of my experience is in the middle grades. I was born and raised in Connecticut. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Eastern Connecticut University, I left Connecticut in search of a teaching position. I presently reside in Garden Grove with my husband, who teaches Religion at Mater Dei High School. I enjoy gardening, reading, and traveling.
