Why I teach at St. Mary’s…

A Catholic education is very important to me and my family. I am originally from Iowa and went to a Catholic school K-12.  I have been with the Gary Diocese for 5 years teaching Kindergarten.  I am very excited to join the St. Mary’s family this coming school year.  I have two sons, one is 5 and the other is 3. My oldest son has been in Catholic preschool for 2 years and will be joining St. Mary’s Kindergarten class this fall. I feel blessed being able to build and strengthen my student’s faith daily in class.  I love watching the children grow and learn spiritually and academically.  I feel honored to join the St. Mary’s family and I look forward to meeting everyone.

Extra-Curricular Activities

My son’s activities have taken over my extra-curricular activities. In the spring and fall you can find me on the soccer fields cheering on my son. During the fall I participate in a book club with my friends. I also love to paint and attend wood crafting events.
