This is my 4th year at St. Albert the Great School.  I moved to Pennsylvania in 2017 from New York.  I have been teaching in Catholic Schools (New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania)  for a very long time.  I took a brief pause to teach Math at a Community College.   I have one dog and 4 cats.  I volunteer for a pet rescue which is a true passion of mine.
