“Comparison is the thief of Joy”

Theodore Roosevelt  

Welcome to my web page!  I’m the Learning Consultant as well as a Math and Reading Interventionist.  I believe in students helping each other while working in groups, letting students work at their own pace, and giving students a choice whenever possible.  These three concepts inspire students to take ownership of their learning and when students take ownership they enjoy the process and learn more.

As a Learning Consultant, I’m a resource to the students, teachers, and parents.  This is truly my passion because I love to help everyone in the learning process.  I am a sounding board, a liaison, an organizer, and a source of information.  I’m whatever is needed to help every student succeed.

I started my career at Illinois State University where I got my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  I started my teaching career as a permanent substitute at St. Paul’s Catholic School in Fenton and then got a permanent position teaching 2nd grade at St. Francis of Assisi and I’ve been here ever since!   After teaching 2nd grade for 5 years, I went to Maryville University to earn my Master's Degree in Elementary Education.  With that degree, I took the position of Learning Consultant.  Over the years, I have attended many workshops and PD’s to address how to help students who struggle with reading and math.

My husband Joe and I are parishioners of St. Francis of Assisi.  We have two children who both graduated from SFA.  Our favorite vacation destination is the beach.  We love to relax and go at our own pace.  We are huge Blues fans.  Go Blues!  My other hobbies are gardening and reading.  I love to tend to my flowers throughout the summer and pick fresh fruits and vegetables.  I could also be perfectly happy reading a book all day long!

St. Francis of Assisi is a special place because of the support we give one another.  There is always someone willing to lend a helping hand or a shoulder when needed.  This includes teachers and families.  SFA is filled with wonderful caring people.  That is why once so many people come here, they stay for a very long time!
