In 2015, my husband and I welcomed our first child, a baby girl named Lucy Diane. Almost 2 years after our first, our second child, Heidi Catherine joined our family! When looking for a school for my daughters that aligns with my philosophy of learning as well as my faith, St. Mary’s Star of the Sea was my number one choice! In fact, Lucy was the first kid on the wait list for the 2018-2019 preschool year. As you can imagine, I am thrilled to be joining the school that I knew in my heart was number one for my own children. I am so blessed to join the St. Mary’s Star of the Sea family and to teach in a student centered, faith based environment.

We have all heard the saying, “Everything I needed to learn, I learned in kindergarten.” Kindergarten is a magical journey, not a race. The kindergarten experience should nurture social-emotional skills in each child and create engaging moments that honor childhood. I am so incredibly blessed to be able to teach kindergarten because I am continually reminded to love, share, create and laugh. I am looking forward to a great new school year!
