Subjects Taught


I grew up attending Catholic schools in Kalamazoo. I am a graduate of both Saint Monica and Hackett. I received my undergraduate degree from Aquinas College and earned a Master of Science in Elementary Reading and Literacy from Walden University.


This will be my 14th year teaching in the Diocese of Kalamazoo. I taught first grade at Saint Monica in Kalamazoo for 12 years. Last year I taught both 3/4 and 4/5 preschool at Saint Mary School. This year I will be teaching 3/4 preschool on Tuesdays and Thursdays.


 My husband, Jeff, is an architect and we live in Kalamazoo. We have two Shelties and our daughter, Madeline, was born in May. We are members of Saint Joseph Church in Kalamazoo.
