Education is not preparing for life; education is life itself. - John Dewey
As I begin my first year at Lacordaire Academy, I look forward to taking part in the mission-driven, collaborative environment to advance the education of each child. Particularly, I am welcoming the opportunity to teach 6th grade World History and Introduction to Education in the Upper School!
In my own educational journey from student, to teacher, to higher education, to administrator, I have tried to support a student-centered, holistic approach in my interaction with students, staff, and parents. It is my personal belief that a successful faith-based program begins with collaboration and a forum to share ideas, best practice and innovation.
During my free time, I enjoy traveling to visit my nieces and nephew (Milwaukee and Boston). Locally, I coordinate Montclair Film’s Emerging Filmmaker Competition for middle/high schoolers and serve on the Board of Trustees for the Montclair History Center. I am honored to be a part of the Lacordaire family!
