I've been employed at the St. Edward School District since 1991.  Teaching 3rd graders was my passion until 2002 and then became the K-12 School Counselor.  I currently teach the subjects above along with  my school counseling duties.  I am also the National Honor Society and Student Council Advisors, Student Assistance Team Coordinator, Mentor Advisor, and Crisis Team Coordinator. 


"Old Sod" is probably a good way to describe myself. I entered these  school doors as a kindergartner many (many) moons ago and I'm still here.  Despite moving around to numerous places during my school years, I found myself back at St. Edward in plenty of time to graduate from High School.  After my husband, Kevin and I graduated from college at Mt. Marty we decided that out of all of the places in the world we could move, there was no better place to raise our family than back in St. Edward.  We are proud to say that our oldest three children graduated from SEHS and it seems that the younger two will also someday be part of the St. Edward Alumni Association.  Secretly, I think we bleed Beaver Maroon. We feel very fortunate to be a part of such a great community and school.
