Hello! This is my fourth year teaching here at Holy Family and I absolutely love it! I teach 3EC-8th grade Physical Education and 6th-8th grade Health Education. I also am the school's Athletic Director. A little about myself: Before coming to Holy Family, I was a long-term substitute in Reedsburg, WI. I taught 10th grade Health and 9th-12th grade Comprehensive Fitness. I have been teaching summer school in Pulaski, WI since 2014. I am very passionate about teaching people of all ages how to live a healthy lifestyle and I love to see my students grow and learn to love being a physically fit individual. Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, going to sporting events and just relaxing!

Health Text Books

Holy Family School has switched to an on-line text book.  This allows students to access health related material anywhere there is internet access.  Students will have access to hundreds of videos, study guides, and the most up to date information on health related topics.  This will be an innovative and exciting new way for students to learn valuable information they will use in the future.  Each student will receive a username and password to login to the Glencoe Health website.
