I teach because I find great joy working with children and helping them become successful and confident in who they are.  I truly appreciate the value of education and have had many excellent educators in my life both of which inspire me to do the best I can every day.  I chose to leave the public school because I believe in the importance of a Catholic education. I came to St. Damian because of the experiences as a parent I had here.  I liked everything I saw as my children grew and developed in this school and parish community from kindergarten to 8th grade graduation which made them who they are today. I truly wanted to be a part of it by bringing my faith to my classroom every day. When I’m not in the building, I’m either reading or planning a vacation to spend during one our school breaks.
