Inspiration to Teach:
I believe that this is my calling in life.  I remember saying in second grade that this is what I want to be.  I cannot imagine being anything but a teacher. 

Teaching at Aquinas:
Teaching at Aquinas lets me be my true self.  I get to work with passionate teachers every day and students who are eager to learn.  I also feel that it is a blessing to be able to express my faith openly and incorporate it in all of my classes.
 
Aquinas Catholic Schools has always been a part of my life.  As a student, I went to Cathedral Grade School and continued on to Aquinas High School.  After I received my education degree, I knew that I wanted to be part of the Aquinas system again.  I feel that Aquinas is part of my family and it is a privilege to work here.
