Since I was a little girl, I always had the interest to teach others. When I went into high school, I began to participate in business classes. Throughout college, I went through the business program and found myself loving the training aspects of human resources. At the time, I was engaged and wanted to complete my education in business. I met many wonderful teachers and professors, and I was inspired. I was married, working as a legal secretary, and was starting a family. I stayed at home with my two kids for a few years. Throughout that time at home, I still had the urge to go back to school to teach. So, I started night classes towards my license and masters degree. I couldn't wait to get in the classroom. I wanted to be that teacher that students can look back on and say they learned some wonderful things from me. I wanted to give back. I believe to this day that God had a plan for me. His plan was for me to be at St. Damian from day one of my journey through school. I didn't know it at first, but I know now that St. Damian is where He wants me. I truly enjoy what I do, the students, families, and all the staff there. It has been a wonderful ongoing journey! When I am not in the building, I am spending time with husband of 20 years, my 16 year old son, and my 13 year old daughter.
