Welcome to Our Lady of the Angels Catholic School! I have been the Advancement Director at OLA, since 2016. I am a graduate of the former, St. Peter’s Catholic School ’89 and Lancaster Catholic ’93. My career prior to starting a family in 2008, was Early Childhood Education, where I held the role of a Director in Child Care Centers through Lancaster County. My husband Joe and I have two beautiful children, Olivia and Joseph, both attending Our Lady of the Angels. This school is definitely my second home. As a child, this was such a special place for me and my family. I am honored to give my children the same experience that I had as a child. There is no place that I would rather be than Our Lady of the Angels.

I am very excited to begin my seventh year hear at Our Lady of the Angels as the Music/Spanish/Physical Education teacher!  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Music Education with a vocal emphasis from Wilkes University.  While I started here seven years ago as a part time Music Teacher, my role has grown to include Spanish and Physical Education.  In addition to the classes I teach, I direct our school’s choir, Seraphim, as well as DARTS, our schools dance and performing arts program.   My strong Catholic faith and love for Jesus continues to be the driving force behind all the classes I teach ever striving to  develop the “whole child” spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and physically.

I am excitedly beginning my 8th year of teaching at Our Lady of the Angels. Growing up as a Catholic school student I spent a lot of time assisting with various grade levels in the Parish School of Religion (PSR) program at St. Leo’s. I continued to do so throughout my 4 years at Lancaster Catholic, before venturing to Shippensburg to attend college. At Shippensburg University, I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Immediately following graduation, I resumed my activity with the PSR program at St. Leo’s, this time becoming the lead teacher for pre-k, kindergarten, and 5th-grade classes. While doing so, I worked as a manager for a candy store and enrolled in the education program at Millersville University. A few years later, I graduated with a teaching certificate and a master’s degree in Elementary Education. After receiving my certification and degree, I worked as a teacher for Head Start and as a substitute teacher for a number of school districts and grades. I was, and continue to be, thrilled to have found a home here at OLA. Outside of school, I stay very busy. My husband, Ben, and very active children, Joey (9) and Kateri (6) keep me on my toes and constantly moving. I enjoy having adventures with them and also spending some of my time helping the community as a volunteer firefighter, public safety educator, and child passenger safety technician.  In the very little bit of free time I do find, I enjoy traveling (especially to the beach), working out, drinking coffee and reading. I am looking forward to sharing some great books with my students and am excited to watch them learn, laugh, and grow this year!

My initial area of study in college was accounting. I quickly came to realize that my greatest desire was to be a teacher and soon changed my major to elementary education. I graduated from Shippensburg University and my first teaching job found me right here in Columbia at St. Peter’s School. After 3 years at St. Peter’s I moved to Kauai, HI and spent 3 years there as well as 3 years in Fallon, NV. I did not teach while in Kauai but did teach the Seriously Emotionally Handicapped Junior High class in Fallon, NV. I moved back to Columbia and taught for 3 years as a long term substitute teacher in the Manheim Central School District. I was offered a job as a 7th grade teacher at Holy Trinity School in Columbia and have never regretted taking that position. I have been in Catholic education ever since, 27 years, and am truly grateful.
