Why I teach at St. Mary’s… 

My family has been part of St. Mary School since 1999. Our 4 children attended and grew academically and spiritually during their enrollment. We were quickly immersed into a thriving, happy, and energetic school. I personally became involved as a parent volunteer, a Home & School Vice President and President and then as the Jr. Pre-K teacher for 8 years. Teaching 3 year olds was such a rewarding and exciting experience! I had such great fun and passion teaching “my kids”. I took a year off to spend more time with my family in Waldron, IN. However, I miss being part of this dynamic school and was given an opportunity to be an aide for our superstar teacher Mrs. Gina Thomas.
