About me
I have been teaching sixth grade at St. Paul the Apostle School for ten years and am passionate about instilling and nurturing a love of reading in my students. I know that reading is essential to all subjects and is the most important activity we will do together in school.

I have a B.A. in Accounting from the University of Notre Dame, a Master of Science in Taxation from DePaul University, and a Bachelor of Education with a reading endorsement from St. Ambrose University.
