Hello and welcome to 6th grade!  This is my 16th year here at IJS.  I hold a BS in Computer and Informational Science with concentrations in Math and Business from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I worked as a Principal Programmer Analyst for Digital Equipment Corporation for ten years during which time I received an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University.  I was fortunate to be able leave Digital and start the most rewarding and challenging career of my life; being a stay-at-home mom to my two daughters, Rebecca and Elizabeth. 

 

After my children were enrolled at IJS, I rediscovered my childhood dream of becoming a teacher.  I became certified through the state of New Hampshire K-8 and was lucky enough to be hired as a sixth grade teacher here at IJS.   Since then I have become a Highly Qualified teacher. I believe that my work experience outside the classroom provides me with a unique experience inside the classroom.  I absolutely love Infant Jesus School and feel fortunate every day that I can teach Religion as well as academics.

 

I have been married to my wonderful husband Tim for almost 26 years.   My oldest daughter, Rebecca recently graduated from  Northeastern University and is living in Boston working for a solar startup company.   My youngest, Elizabeth, graduated  Colby College in Maine this past spring.  She works for Mass General Hospital in Boston as a Clinical Research Assistant while preparing to return to school to study for her doctorate.  They are living proof of the amazing education children receive here at Infant Jesus. 

 

 

In my spare time I love to read; especially while floating in my pool or at the beach!  I have recently taken up running and have even completed a few 5K’s.  Anytime I get to spend with my brothers, sisters, nieces and nephews is precious.
