Why I chose to become a teacher
I was secretary at Holy Family School from 1971-1997. I often saw students who were sent to the office and were struggling with their work. They seemed to be in need of help, and I wanted to help them in whatever way I could. The way I felt I could most help them was to get my teaching degree and become a teacher. I have had the privilege of working with students on a one to one basis or in small groups since receiving my teaching degree.
What I like most about teaching at Holy Family
I like working in a Catholic environment, and with the Faculty and Staff. The Faculty and Staff are very supportive and really care about helping one another, especially when there is a crisis in someone’s life or family.
How your faith influences teaching
God is so patient with me, and I ask God for patience as I work with the students. We are all God’s children, we all have different abilities, and He loves us even when we fail.
