The first week of Advent is a week of Hope. This week prepares us to be people of hope and believe that darkness will not prevail, but the light of the world will overcome it. Monday mornings during Advent we will walk the students directly from the playground to the Church for all school morning prayer. The rest of the week we will meet with our department, grades 3-5 in the hallway outside of our classroom for morning prayer led by students.  Dress uniform on Friday as we celebrate The Feast of the Immaculate Conception with an all school mass.

I received my initial certification in Special Education/Elementary Education from Western Washington University. I hold a Montessori Degree from Northwest Montessori school and a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction: Reading and Writing from Lesley University. I began my teaching career with a variety of classroom positions and joined the St John faculty in 1990 as a Kindergarten teacher. I later moved to 2nd grade, then to middle school where for the past 10 years I have taught a variety of subjects most currently as 8th grade homeroom and middle school religion teacher. Last year I asked to move to 4th grade, a grade I have never taught before. I am a native Seattleite growing up in the Wedgewood neighborhood and attending OLL and Blanchet high school. I am a wife, mother of 3 adult daughters, and one granddaughter. What I love most about teaching is experiencing the joy that learning brings to my students.
