Favorite Thing About St Robert's - I love that St Roberts is a school that forms a tight-knit community. One where children across grades know one another, help each other, and become family for years. Most importantly, it is a place here souls are nourished and formed in the faith, making it much more than just a school of academics.
Favorite Thing About Teaching: I love teaching 5th and 6th Grade because I enjoy guiding these students through their successes, bumps in the road, and the every day routine. It is very rewarding to see these students gain confidence in their abilities and mature across the span of these two grades. Central to all this, is the deep joy I have in being part of a community of teachers that helps form these students in their faith. It is the anchor of my teaching from which everything else comes.
