Welcome to my bio page! My husband, John, and I live on a farm with our daughter, Ava. She is also a student here at Holy Childhood. As parents, we chose this school for its solid Catholic foundation and excellent academics. As a teacher, I chose this school because I was impressed with its academic rigor when my daughter was first enrolled as a student.
I come from a large Catholic family, being the 6th of 7 children. I am a graduate of McKendree University. Prior to Holy Childhood, I taught for St. Louis Public Schools for 10 years and then was a stay-at-home-mom for a few years after our daughter was born. Returning to work, in particular joining Holy Childhood, was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
