I have a B.A. in English from the University of Notre Dame and I went through the Saint Mary's College Elementary Education program.  I have taught 3rd grade, kindergarten, and first grade. Three of my children attend Mishawaka Catholic and my oldest daughter is a freshman at Marian High School. My family belongs to the St. Bavo parish.
