After graduating from UW-La Crosse in education, I began my teaching career at Holy Trinity School.  I then taught at Blessed Sacrament and finally moved to Aquinas Middle School.  I enjoy my teaching experience along with directing the drama club presentation for the school musical each year.  I enjoy travel with my family and read every chance I get.
7th Grade Literature
The literature program includes a study of the major literary genres. Selections include poetry, drama, science fiction, fiction, and nonfiction. Students read a wide variety of short stories, plays, and novels. Students develop strategies to become active readers, build vocabulary, and analyze elements of both classical and contemporary pieces of literature. Literary analysis of character and setting, plot, mood, tone, and theme is developed through group discussions, independent practice, and technology applications.
7th Grade Religion - Wisco
Seventh grade curriculum is based on Sacred Scripture and stresses the dignity of each individual as an image of God. Four key truths of the Catholic faith are emphasized: God, Creation, Christ, and Commandments. Classes are designed to encourage students to take an active role in their spiritual development.
