"I have been a substitute teacher for all grades for over 30 years and was a para-pro for a hearing impaired class working with kindergarten level students for three years. I especially enjoy the grade school age children for their curiosity, imagination and willingness to learn. My strength is in English, Reading and Writing, but enjoy Science and Social Studies as they are firmly connected to Reading and critical thinking skills.

I have been involved in Vacation Bible School for about sixteen years and have taught the Safe Touching class for our parish. Showing children the "why" of our faith is a particular love of mine.
