I have the best job! Working with students kindergarten through 8th grade is a unique challenge; every day is a new opportunity to share my love of reading. I am fortunate to be a part of this nurturing community. My three children graduated from Holy Cross, and I am so lucky to work with a staff that has become my second family.

I believe that God gives everyone a special gift of creativity. My job as an art teacher is to nurture and cultivate these feelings into a life-long pursuit of creative expression through art. I am thankful that Holy Cross truly understands and support the arts and the important role that art plays in the development of children’s minds. I love my job. I work with great people and you couldn't ask for a better bunch of kids.

My first teaching job was at a small Catholic school in a rural Wisconsin community. The people of this community were so wonderful. They were friendly, hard working, faith filled, down-to-earth people who had strong morals and values. The kids were an absolute joy to teach and coach. It was an honor to be a part of St. Francis Xavier. And then two years later, we moved to Kansas. I was devastated because I had to leave a community I loved so dearly. I didn't think I'd find anything like St. Francis Xavier ever again. I was wrong. I found Holy Cross. I am so blessed to be here and to have my kids here as well.

I teach at Holy Cross because of the commitment shown by teachers, staff and parish community. The environment at Holy Cross supports our Catholic faith. I think a solid foundation is inportant for young people as they develop spiritually and academically. Holy Cross provides a solid foundation of priniples based in faith and education that will sustan young people in their life journey.
