What is a fun fact about you?

In 2017, during my semester studying in Athens, Greece, I traveled through 20
cities in 9 countries without data on my phone.

What is your hope for your students?

I hope Heaven for my students! As my students grow in love with Jesus, and discover how deeply Jesus loves them, I pray that they are compelled to love their neighbors as themselves. As they embark on the continual discovery and development of their gifts and talents, I hope they find ways to give themselves away in service for and with others.

“To discover that you are loved is the center of all existence. And when we are filled with this total and delirious love, little by little, we grow and love in turn. That gradualness in our journeys is a sign of the infinite tenderness of God.”
-Cristiana Paccini and Simone Troisi, authors of “Chiara Corbella Petrillo: A Witness to Joy”

As we grow and love as a classroom community, I hope my students can know the ‘infinite tenderness of God’ who made each of them so good.

I hope my students can be life-long learners — people who look at life as a pilgrimage to the Lord. I hope their wonder & endless curiosity will be enkindled as we learn how to ask good questions, discover what brings us joy and where we are most fully alive, and how we can best care for one another.
