Working with the eighth graders during their final year of grade school is an amazing adventure. This is a busy transition year, closing the elementary chapter of their lives and preparing for high school. There are many exciting experiences in eighth grade: outdoor education camp, previewing high schools, and yearbook creation. One of the best parts of my job is collaborating with my partner teacher, Stephanie Maloney, to create lessons for the entire eighth grade. We design lessons that combine our content areas and technology to best challenge and enrich our students.
Teaching religion to seventh graders is truly a blessing. I am exploring and deepening my faith along with the students. It is humbling and awe-inspiring to see how we are all a part of God's Kingdom.
My husband, Dave, and I have five children who graduated from St. Pius X. In my free :) time, I enjoy reading, attending my kids' sporting events, and watching football. Go Hawks and Steelers!
As a St. Pius X alumna and parent, I can think of no better school to educate my children (and yours).
