I have been teaching for over 20 years and this is my 9th or 10th year at Holy Cross School and my 6th year at Holy Family School. My main hobbies and interests are jewelry making, reading mysteries and camping. I am always looking for something new to learn in the area of art and ways I can incorporate that into my art curriculum. In my eyes, the students make a school special. I live in Green Bay with my husband and six cats.
