Welcome to our Kindergarten class!

I have been teaching a combination of Preschool and Kindergarten for over 30 years. I taught Preschool at Sacred Heart Cathedral School for 16 years, Kindergarten at St. Rita School for 12 years, and Kindergarten at St. John Bosco Schools for 4 years. Each school and each group of children/families has been a blessing in its own special way. When I learned about the Kindergarten position opening at Nazareth a few years ago, it truly felt meant to be. My daughters both attended SHCS Pre-K through Grades 5/6 and then attended Nazareth Middle School and Academy.
Pope Francis said young children aren't our future, they are our NOW!! I truly believe this and we have so much to learn from them – they see life simply, forgive more easily, speak more honestly … Jesus also said we need to change and become like children to enter the Kingdom of God – maybe that's why I've been teaching this grade level so long!🙂 Children are a gift, and I receive many being with them. I'm thrilled to be at Nazareth!
