I am a proud product of the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Catholic School System. I graduated from St. Jude School in Chalfont and attended Lansdale Catholic High School where I graduated in 1994. I went on to pursue my Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education at Gwynedd-Mercy College and graduated in 1998. As you can see, Catholic education is very important to me and I am forever thankful to my parents for making so many sacrifices in order to give me that gift. My teaching career began seventeen years ago at St. Stanislaus School and I am very grateful to be able to continue my love for teaching here at Mater Dei. Over those seventeen years, I have had the opportunity to teach Kindergarten, 2nd grade, 4th grade, and 6th grade. I am also a wife and mother. My husband, John, is as committed to Catholic education as I am. He is also a product of sixteen years of Catholic schooling and has been a high school English teacher for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for the past nineteen years. He currently teaches English at Archbishop Carroll High School. My daughter, Courtney, is a proud 2016 graduate of Mater Dei Catholic School and will begin her sophomore year of high school at Archbishop Carroll this fall.
