SCHOOL PHONE: 412-828-9323


I am teaching the M-F 4/5 year-old class and PM Preschool classes at the Redeemer-Oakmont campus. I have been with the preschool since September 1994, first as a preschool assistant and now as a teacher. I received my BSN from Carlow College and then returned later in life to Butler County Community College and received my Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education. In May 2011 I graduated from Chatham University with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education.

My family consists of my husband, Don, and our three children: Scott, age 27; Matt, age 24, and Emily, age 21! This summer has brought lots of change to our family. Scott is now living in Morgantown, WV and Emily is currently in Tajikistan and plans to stay and teach English as a second language. This summer Matt moved to Austin, TX and Don and I went on a little road trip to help him move some furniture. So Don and I are now truly empty-nesters!

We are active members at St. Luke Lutheran Church in Cabot, a sister LCMS congregation to Redeemer. All of my children graduated from St. Luke School and we love Lutheran schools!

I am looking forward to our new year learning and growing together. It is a comfort to know that God is in control of all things. I can't wait to see what He has in store for us!

The mission for the class is for all children to learn and grow, sharing God's love through their words and actions.
