After working as a Reading Tutor in the Harvard Reading Lab and at Palfrey Street Alternative High School in Watertown, I accepted a job as a Learning Disabilities Specialist in the Medfield Public Schools. I instructed children ranging from pre-kindergarten through grade 8 in a resource room setting. After many years as a stay-at-home Mom, I became a substitute teacher at St. Mary School. In 1999 I was offered a teaching position in First Grade,
and for 17 years entering that classroom always put a smile on my face. Each day I thank God for the gift of St. Mary School and the beautiful children and families I have come to know over the years.
As I begin a new phase of my career, I look forward to the challenge and excitement of serving as the Assistant Principal and Admissions Director. It was a difficult decision to leave First Grade, but I am thrilled to have this opportunity to interact with the students in all grades.
My favorite thing to do is to spend time with my family which includes my husband, Tom, and my two sons, Tommy and Michael, graduates of St. Mary School. Reading is an addiction for me, and I belong to a Book Club that meets monthly. I also enjoy taking long walks, playing tennis and golf, and relaxing at the beach with my friends and family.
