Middle School Language Arts & Social Studies

I am truly blessed to be back at Queen of All Saints where I student taught in 2014. I originally attended Ball State University and earned a journalism degree. I moved to LaPorte to be an editor at The LaPorte Herald-Argus where I met my future husband, Bob. During this time, I became an active parishioner at St. Joseph Catholic Church in LaPorte, teaching middle school religious education and helping to start and lead a middle school youth group. With God’s grace, we had four children (Michael, John Paul, Rebecca, and Jamie -- deceased) to join my stepchildren (Alan, Matthew, and Julia). I was honored to stay home with them while they were young and earned a transition to teaching license through Indiana Wesleyan University. I taught third grade at St. John’s Lutheran School in LaPorte for three years and now have come home to QAS where I will teach junior high language arts and social studies.
