I engage students in hands-on lessons that are relative to their experiences and interests. I believe it is important to incorporate technology in the classroom because it is so prevalent in today’s society. I show students that learning is fun and the information being taught is relevant to the outside world. I provide the skills necessary for my students to succeed in my classroom as well as to become life long learners.

I enjoy working at Mater Dei Academy because everyone is so friendly. I also love how students have the desire to learn something new every day.

Philosophy I believe that every child holds something unique that will allow him or her to succeed in life in the most unexpected ways.  I feel that it is my calling to recognize these distinctive qualities as gifts from God and do everything in my power to encourage that these characteristics be put in action.

I love working at Mater Dei Academy because it is a community filled with passion, respect, and devotion for our students and their families.
