Holy Cross is special because it allows students and staff to develop both roots and wings. Our roots are grounded in our faith while our wings reach out to God. We help each other develop our potentials as we live in the eternal stretch between our roots and our wings.

I entered the world of education because of my love of learning new things and for the joy of being around children. I joined Holy Cross because of the warm, friendly atmosphere that I felt when I first entered the building. Holy Cross staff and teachers welcome everyone into the building and let them know that they are part of a new family and part of Christ’s family.

It is such an honor and blessing to serve as a Catholic educator at Holy Cross! Holy Cross is a family where parents, the first teachers of their children, can partner with teachers to help students know God’s love and mercy, seek God’s Truth and grow in friendship with Jesus. The smiles and friendships at our school is a joyful witness to Christ’s love and a zeal to live virtuously so “all may be one” in the communion of love of the Most Holy Trinity!

I wear many colorful hats here at Holy Cross. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. Mostly, I’m in the primary grades, but I do help out in all aspects of the school when I’m called upon.

One of my favorites bible quotes: 1 Peter 4:10
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

I believe Holy Cross is my gift, I was called to be a good steward to this wonderful community of faith filled families. I want to thank each and everyone for letting me work in this AWESOME school.
