Kindergarten Teacher

My background

BS Elementary Education, Butler University; Kindergarten Endorsement 

Why do I work at St. Malachy
It is my extended family. St. Malachy has helped raise our own children and we feel it takes a village. We like the idea of the church and school being connected in the village. As a teacher, I get to know my students and families outside of the school setting.
Where do I sit at church
Our children get to pick-usually they go to the far left or the far right. We never make it in time for the the center!  :-)
How would you describe St. Malachy to someone who has never been here
It's more than a school, it's a community
Home, family, pets
I have 4 kids, 2 dogs and 1 cat.  My children are 15-9 and attend St Malachy and Cathedral.
Favorite Scripture passage
And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who serve Him, who have been called according to His purpose.  Romans 8:28
One memory of church growing up
Singing praise songs with my mom!
Favorite quote
"You won.  You were first in your shoes."
Favorite book
I love to read and get lost in a book.
