K5 TEACHER (SJOA SCHOOL)
Everything I need to know in life I learned in Kindergarten……
If you really think about it, it’s true. Kindergarten helps build the foundation in a child for lifelong learning, and the ‘people skills’ for cooperative play and work. It’s so important children experience their early childhood years filled with love, activities, and people that help to guide them into a future with a solid foundation, and a love for learning. THIS is why I wanted to be a Kindergarten teacher.
I chose to teach in a Catholic School because I feel I have a gift from God to impact and influence children. I am so thankful to our Lord for giving this gift to me, and allowing me to share it with His children. I believe my calling is to go above and beyond the curriculum seen in a public school; to teach so much more, and help my students develop an insight into God’s teachings, as well as build individual relationships with God.
When I’m not teaching Kindergarten, you might be able to find me on one of the area lakes. I love kayaking! I began when my three sons were young. Yes, our family has five kayaks. They’ve served us well for many years. The boys are all in their twenties now, but we still make sure we find the time for family activities.
When I’m not kayaking, you might be able to find me at the dog park in Nashotah. The female canine members of my family include Bella and Ginger, our two Cavaliers.
One thing you can be sure of; no matter where I go and what I do, I will most likely have my camera with me. Photography is big on my list of favorites. Children, animals, and nature make the best subjects!
I am blessed… and the St. Joan of Arc Community is a HUGE part of that feeling!
