Catholic education has been a way of life for me, and I couldn’t have chosen anything better. I attended St. Mary’s in South River for grade school and Bishop George Ahr/St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Edison. I graduated from Rider University with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Shortly after graduating I worked at FSA, Family Service Association, as a therapist and group facilitator, assuming a caseload of about 25 clients. I have always had a passion for teaching. I went on to receive my teaching certificate and became certified to teach K-8. For the past 12 years, I taught re-k/k aged children at Trinity Learning Center in Egg Harbor Twp. I developed a comprehensive curriculum to academically challenge the students, with necessary social advancement opportunities. I am excited to further foster my love for teaching here at St. Vincent de Paul.
I have been happily married for 15 years and have 3 beautiful daughters whom are an absolute blessing. My oldest recently graduated from St. Vincent’s; my second will be graduating at the end of this school year and my youngest will be attending Pre-K3. Outside of school, I love spending time with my family: going to their sporting events, church on Sundays, and quality time together wherever we go.
Overall, children are my passion and seeing them learn is a gratifying experience. The vast amount of knowledge that they are capable of absorbing is astounding, therefore challenging them will allow them to work at their fullest potential. I love the primary years!!
