About Me
Hello, I am very excited to be teaching Pre-k and getting to know your children this year.  A little bit about myself.  I originally hail from Pennsylvania.  Thanks to the Army I have lived in six different states since marrying my husband Joe.  We have 2 beautiful children who attend Holy Family.  Prior to having children, I was a practicing attorney.  However, since having children I have devoted my time to raising them, and for the last several years I have volunteered and worked in preschools.  I was an Aide in Pre-k last year at HFS and prior to that I was a regular substitute teacher for grades preschool 2's through kindergarten in South Carolina. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and traveling.

I believe a classroom should be a safe and nurturing environment and I hope to instill a love of learning in each of my students.  My desire is for them to know that learning is fun!!  I am looking forward to a great school year!

If you need to contact me, please email me at prek@holyfamilylacey.com or calling the office at (360) 491- 7060.  I will check my email daily.
