Hi!  I am very excited to be starting my 7th year here at Mater Dei as a Kindergarten teacher! I can't wait to see what this year has in store for all of us and the adventures we are going to have - learning together is going to be so much fun! A little about me: My husband Jim and I have been married for 27 years and are both Penn State graduates, where we met. We have two adult children, Mackenzie and Cullen, who share in my love for Disney. I look forward to a great year! I am always available by email, so please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to a GREAT year together.
