Growing up in So-Cal, I attended St. Eugene’s and St. Bernard’s Catholic schools. My parents were so matter-of-fact about my going to Catholic school, I took for granted the sacrifices they made for me to receive a Catholic education. I am grateful for the opportunity to absorb both the academics and developed a strong faith in God. The education I received resulted in a strong personal foundation which has enabled me to live a productive and joyful life.
Teaching English Language Arts to middle school students here at OLPH is a dream job! It gives me the opportunity to honor my parents’ sacrifice by helping my students develop a strong academic foundation and providing them with opportunities to deepen their faith and identity as a Catholic.
I am so blessed to have a job I love in a wonderful parish school community.
