Why a Catholic Education Matters
I have attended Catholic Schools from Kindergarten through college and have treasured all my experiences throughout the years. I am grateful to all of the role models I encountered and hope to "give back" and contribute as positively to help the children who are our future. To teach at St. Joseph School provides me with the opportunity to share both my faith and my knowledge with each student. I am privileged to work with exceptional colleagues, parents and principal. Each are devoted to educating the "whole child."

My goal for the school year is to make second-language learning fun and useful for the students! With minds ripe for language learning, they quite naturally pick up on pronunciation of Spanish.
We are studying the conjugation and usage of various irregular verbs in the present tense. The newest vocabulary units involve clothing terms.
The students have just mastered how to tell time in Spanish. They will soon be moving into a unit on regular "-er" and "-ir" ending verbs.
The class has just finished studying a family unit and will begin learning clothing terms next.
We have been learning table setting terminology and common foods kids love to order at a popular restaurant.
The class is working with calendar vocabulary, such as months, days of the week and how to state the date.
We are currently studying clothing. The students just finished learning about parts of a place setting.
The students have learned how to name various fruits and vegetables in Spanish. They will be practicing the days of the week as their next topic.
The class has been practicing family vocabulary and will be adding rooms of the house to their Spanish vocabulary next.
We are currently learning the terms for articles of clothing while continuing to practice the parts of the body.
