A little bit about yourself: I am married to my husband, Lynn. We have three children, Ryan, Tim and Caitlin, who all attended St. Peter School and Helias. With kids living in different states, my favorite hobby is traveling to visit them. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and coworkers outside of school.

I love teaching at St. Peter School because it allows me to share my love of Math and Science with my students. I want Math and Science to not only be fun for the students, but also for them to see how both impact their everyday life.
