What I love most about working at St. John’s:

I love being able to teach our Catholic faith to the young minds at Saint John’s.  This is my 20th year of teaching kindergarten, but my first year at a Catholic School.  I am a life-long Catholic and my faith is the most important thing in my life.  Teaching in a Christ-centered environment, where we pray throughout the day, enhances my teaching in every aspect.  I am blessed to be a part of the Saint John’s family as a parent and a teacher.

Where I’m from:

Born and raised in Raton, NM

Interests and Hobbies:

I love reading, camping, spending time with my family and watching the Denver Broncos.

A personal note:

My husband Eric and I have been married since 2004.  We have two daughters who both attend St. John’s.

Best faith experience:

I feel that two faith experiences have impacted my life and my relationship with God.  I attended World Youth Day in 1993 when Saint Pope John Paul II visited the Mile High City.  This was a life-changing experience, as it helped me to better understand and love my Catholic faith.   In 2015, my family and I attended the World Meeting of Families where Pope Francis visited Philadelphia.  This trip helped me understand my role as a parent and the importance of centering our family around Jesus.
