Hello! I have been teaching at St. Patrick School since 2011. Prior to coming to St. Patrick, I taught at Columbus Catholic High School for seven years. I love being a part of a Catholic school, and have taught a variety of material to a variety of ages. Currently, I teach 6-8 Language Arts and Speech. I love being able to work with older students and seeing the growth they make from grade six to grade eight. I grew up in Cedar Falls and attended St. Patrick School through eighth grade. I then went on to Columbus and attended Loras College in Dubuque, graduating in 2004. Right after college, I moved back to Waterloo and married my husband, Michael, in December of 2004. We have three sons: Frankie and Rudy (who both attend St. Patrick School) and our toddler, Loras. In my free time, I love to spend time with my family, read, exercise, and bake. I also like volunteering for the local food bank, where my husband is the Director of External Relations.
I feel very blessed to be part of the St. Patrick community. I love my job, and have found that the students and parents are extremely supportive!
