Teaching at Saint Joseph's Since: 2023

Why Saint Joseph's?
I enjoy teaching all grade levels, but feel my strengths mainly lie in teaching 9th-12th grade. Students of this age are in the process of learning how to use their God-given talents to be fully realized individuals and constructive members of society—I find being a part of this process inspiring. In my view, there is no greater reward as a teacher than seeing what students are able to accomplish in the “real world” using the skills they’ve learned in school!
