This is my third year at St. Patrick School teaching 2nd grade. Previously, I was a Title I teacher at the former St. Johns and St. Rose where I discovered my fondness for a Catholic school education. When my work as a Title I teacher ended, I was fortunate to be hired at St. Pats about a year later. I also teach religion and help to prepare my students for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion. It is very rewarding. I thoroughly enjoy watching my students grow as I prepare them to move from new second graders at the start of the school year to third graders at the end of the year.
Personally, I am married and have 3 children, ages 27, 21, and 21. My oldest son lives nearby and one of the twins lives in Pittsburgh where she works and has plans of becoming a Veterinarian Technician. Her twin brother lives at home while attending Mt. Aloysius College. Although my children are grown, my house is far from quiet or boring as we have 3 large dogs and two cats.
