I relocated with my family to Memphis from New York in 2010. While in New York, I taught all grades from kindergarten - eighth in the public school system. I have taught at St. Francis of Assisi for 5 years in various roles including seventh-grade geography, third grade, and fifth grade PLUS. Currently, I am teaching traditional fifth grade. Teaching in a Catholic School has been a wonderful change for me. Sharing your faith daily with students adds a new depth to the teacher-student relationship. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and gardening. For volunteer work, I foster dogs to prepare them for adoption. Currently, I reside in Cordova with my family.
