“I believe in teaching the Christian path to follow according to the Bible so each child develops into an adult who lives the Catholic faith daily. I also believe in the importance of teaching each student educational information they need to build on to become responsible and professionally successful adults. I have enjoyed my childhood dream of being a Second Grade Teacher.”
