This is my first year teaching at St. Raphael and my first year as a licensed educator. I am excited to be part of this faith community and for the opportunity to work with the kindergarten students. Catholic education is very close to my heart, so I feel blessed to be a teacher in a Catholic school and to be able to share my love of the Catholic faith with my students.
I completed my B.A. in Elementary Education and minor in Catholic Studies from the University of St. Thomas in May 2017 and fulfilled my clinical practice at Annunciation Catholic School in fourth grade. I loved working with fourth graders but am looking forward to teaching students to read and all of the growth that happens in kindergarten.
I am originally from Waterloo, Iowa and have lived in St. Paul for the past four years while I attended St. Thomas. I fell in love with the Twin Cities and am happy to be teaching in the Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis. I am a new parishioner at St. Raphael and am looking forward to getting to know the students and families here!
