I've been teaching at St. Mary's for 14 years.
The reason I decided to become an educator was because I had many influential teachers in my life and education was a career many of my family members chose. As I finished my senior year at McAuley and I helped my mother in her first grade classroom I began to see the joy of teaching. I saw how the students were eager to learn and the excitement of when they grasped a concept. I enjoyed being around the students and helping them. I feel that same way even today, I am proud to be part of Joplin Area Catholic Schools.
I wanted to teach at St. Mary's because I wanted to be able to share my Catholic faith with our youth. I love how we are able to celebrate mass and pray together.
I enjoy spending time with my family, especially when we are able to visit a National Park, so I can learn more about topics I teach in my classroom.
