I am very excited to be teaching First Grade again at Mater Dei Catholic School! This will be my fourteenth year of teaching full time in The Archdiocese of Philadelphia. I have taught Second Grade for five years, Third Grade for two years, and this will be my seventh year in First Grade. I stopped teaching after my first five years to spend time with my family and then I began substituting at St. Catherine of Siena when my youngest son began Kindergarten there. I have three sons. Matthew is 18 and beginning his freshman year at University of South Carolina, Jack is 17, and Brady is 15. I also have 2 dogs, Cooper and Ela. I enjoy watching my boys' golf matches, swim meets, and tennis matches. We are members of St. Catherine of Siena Parish in Horsham. I am looking forward to a great year in 1B!
