10 Years Experience At School

I began teaching at St. Pius V in September of 2009. I am a graduate of St. Pius V Class of 2001. After getting my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, I returned to St. Pius as a Pre-Kindergarten/ Kindergarten Aide. The following year along with completing my Master's degree in Elementary Education, I also became one of the First Grade Teachers which I taught for six years. Two years ago, I began my current role as the Support Service Reading Teacher. Many of my teachers instilled a love of learning that has always stayed with me. I hope to pass that same love of learning on to my students.
