What a blessing it is to be a part of the St. Maximilian Kolbe School family as the 2nd Grade teacher. Working in a strong Christian environment has been my fortune as I taught at St. Michael and St. Stephen’s Catholic Schools prior to coming here. When my children were young I made a shift to be home with them and started a Christian-based daycare business as well.
I am a proud alumnus of the College of St. Benedict with a BA in Elementary Education. My ongoing course work has a high concentration in behavioral studies. This focus has given me the tools I need to treat EVERY CHILD as a child of God who deserves to be understood and accepted for who they are. We work hard in second grade to understand that “fair is not equal” and differences are worth CELEBRATING! My favorite part of working at St. Max is sharing in the awe of God’s Grace anew each year as the children experience Reconciliation and the Eucharist for the very first time.
