Summary
My catholic faith has always been an integral part of my life. I was brought up in an active Roman Catholic family. Our family prayed together daily and assisted at St. Ann's Parish for many years until the closure of our parish. I have raised my 7 children in the Roman Catholic faith and have been an active parishioner. I have dedicated my family and my life to Our Lord Jesus Christ. I have taught my children the faith through daily family prayer, catechesis, and example. I have been blessed with 7 children, two of which have answered the call to serve in the United States Navy and in the United States Marines. 
I am passionate about my faith and want to be an apostle of Jesus Christ in spreading the gospel through religious education of children and families. My family and I regularly attend mass and live a sacramental life. I believe I was called to teach the faith to others via word and example. 
 I am also a dedicated Special Education Teacher focused on building each student's strength and confidence, as well as giving students firm guidelines, regularity and dependability to foster their social and academic growth.  
I am a dedicated Special Education Teacher versed in working with all learning styles.  I Regularly attend professional development seminars, faculty meetings and parent-teacher conferences to remain connected to the needs of children and their parents.
