Years at St. John’s: I am a St. John’s alumni and lifelong church member. This is my first year teaching 1st Grade at St. John’s.
Favorite Bible Verse: Micah 6:8 He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. and what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.
One fun fact: My family lives in Lombard and we love doing fun things together. My husband, Mike, and I enjoy taking our son Aiden to explore different parks and we love going to the Zoo. I love teaching in a place that I can call “home”. Being able to share my faith, encourage my students, and remind them that God made them special and in His image. I love being able to share with them that God is always faithful and just. I love to work and challenge students to learn in many different ways, all while having fun.
