I am beginning my 33rd year of teaching at St. Cecilia.  Prior to that I spent 4 1/2 years with OPS.  I have taught second grade for 29 of my 33 years at St. Cecilia.  The other 2 years were spent in third grade.
I am the proud mother of 5 grown children, 2 boys and 3 girls.  I am also the grandmother of 6, 1 girl and 5 boys.   My children and myself are all graduates of St. Cecilia Grade School. That education was the foundation of our faith and our path to higher learning.  My children are all college graduates.
One of my great joys of teaching is getting the second graders ready for the sacraments of First Reconciliation and First Communion. The wonder and innocence with which they approach these two sacraments strenghtens my faith each year.
