Grade: 2nd


Favorite Quotation: “We are all called to be great saints, don’t miss the opportunity.” Mother Angelica


Why I Teach:  When I attended Catholic elementary school, I began to feel a calling to be a teacher. I love the opportunity to help young students not only learn new things but also grow stronger in their Catholic faith.


Education and Training: I graduated from Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches, Texas with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.


Where I have lived: I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. I have lived in Thibodaux, Louisiana; Nacogdoches, Texas; Kissimmee, Florida; Tyler, Texas; and now Dallas, Texas.


My Professional Experience: This is my third year teaching 2nd grade at St. Joseph.  Prior to working at St. Joseph, I taught 5th grade math and science in Tyler, Texas.


My Family: I have a lab/pitbull mix dog named Nicholas that lives with me.  My parents both work at Stephen F. Austin State University. I also have two brothers that live in Seattle, Washington.


Something you might not know about me: I used to work at Walt Disney World in Florida.


My prayer for my students:

Dear God,

I thank you for this day and every day of our lives. I ask you to watch over our students and fill them with your wisdom and blessings. Help them to have open minds so that they can learn new things and continually grow closer to You.
