I am a St. John's Jet through and through! I attended St. John's Kindergarten through 8th grade and LOVED every minute of it. Some of my fondest memories were teachers and friends at St. John's. I knew I wanted to be a teacher because of such great teachers in my elementary days at St. John's. Upon graduation from Pius X High School, I attended the Benedictine College (Go Ravens!) in Atchison, Kansas where received a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. After graduation, I taught special education at Atchison Middle School for 7 years and coached cross country and track at the high school.

Personal History

I was born and raised in Lincoln, NE. I moved to Atchison, Kansas for college and taught in the town for 7 years. Dan and I married and were Resident Directors and lived in a men’s dorm on Benedictine’s campus for our first year of marriage. We missed Nebraska, so we moved back to be closer to family.

My Family

My husband is Dan and I have been happily married for 7 years with three wonderful blessings; Monica, Samuel, and Margaret.

Favorite Prayer:

Magnificat. (So much meaning!)

Favorite School Lunch:

Taco Salad.

What are you most looking forward to this year?
