I believe that God gives everyone a special gift of creativity. My job as an art teacher is to nurture and cultivate these feelings into a life-long pursuit of creative expression through art. I am thankful that Holy Cross truly understands and support the arts and the important role that art plays in the development of children’s minds. I love my job. I work with great people and you couldn’t ask for a better bunch of kids.

B.S. Elementary/Physical Education, University of Wisconsin- Platteville
My first teaching job was at a Catholic school in Wisconsin. The people of the community were friendly, hard working, faith-filled and down-to-earth. They had strong morals and values, and it was an absolute joy to teach and coach their children. I loved it there. Then we moved to Kansas. I was devastated because I thought I would never again find anything like the wonderful school I left. I was wrong! I found Holy Cross. My daughter attended Holy Cross and my son currently attends. As a teacher and as a parent, I feel blessed to be a part of the Holy Cross community.
