"Let the children come to me;
do not prevent them,
for the kingdom of God
belongs to such as these.
Amen, I say to you,
whoever does not accept the kingdom
of God like a child will not enter it."

Then he embraced them and blessed them, placing his hands on them.

About the Teacher

I was born, baptized, and raised in the faith community at St. Charles Borromeo.

Mr. Flynn & I were even married here! Mr. Flynn is a retired Naval Aviator and commercial pilot. He is currently working in the Information Technology field. He is my rock! Mr. Flynn is always willing to share his time & talent behind-the-scenes, and even visits the classroom on occasion.

My own education includes a B.A. degree from the College of St. Benedict and an M.A. degree in education from the College of St. Catherine. I have also earned Elementary Science Education Certification from Hamline University.

I owned my own child care business, and worked in the design field prior to becoming a teacher.

This is my sixteenth year of fulltime teaching at St. Charles Borromeo and I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to serve our faith community, you, and your children as teacher.

Feedback is of utmost importance. Both positive and negative comments would be much appreciated. Please feel free to speak with me or to leave a voice message any time...even teachers need to learn !!

It is my goal to see to it that each student is fully engaged, challenged, and respected in the classroom. I have high expectations for the students academically, socially, and spiritually.

I am looking forward to a productive, creative, and enjoyable year together.
