Happy New school Year!
I am so excited to be back for the new school year! I am beginning my 3rd year here at St. Mary, and I can honestly say that I have been truly BLESSED! How wonderful it is to teach in a place where I am surrounded by caring, joyful, faith-filled and MERCIFUL people - staff, faculty and families!
This is actually my 18th year in education. I previously taught at a great school 45 minutes from here. While that position was an amazing experience, teaching in a Catholic School gives me the opportunity to live out my faith on a daily basis. How amazing it is to be able to share my faith in every aspect of the curriculum.
I believe that the Holy Spirit led me here to St. Mary! I am privileged to teach in the 3rd Grade Classroom where I actually attended 3rd Grade - many years ago! My 3rd Grade teacher was one of my greatest inspirations for becoming a teacher. God works in very REAL ways!
A little about my family:
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Brett, for 33 years. He is retired from Spirit Aerosystems, and I am excited to say that he will be volunteering here at St. Mary this year. He plans to learn more about our computer systems and help out with trouble shooting, etc.
We have two grown children. Our oldest, Jenna and her husband Luke live here in Newton. They (and God) have blessed us with 2 amazing granddaughters - Adalynn and Emily. Jenna was recently promoted to Director of Nursing at Pine Village in Moundridge. Our son Brian lives in Austin, Texas and is co-owner of a welding shop, as well as a Certified Weld Inspector. He is very talented and has completed many interesting jobs in the city of Austin.
My goal is to update this web page more frequently - some come back soon for some 1st Week of School information - and hopefully pictures!
