I began teaching at St John Nepomuk in 2010, after moving here from our last military assignment in Albuquerque. My husband and I are both native Oklahomans and returned here after his Air Force career. I completed my bachelor’s degree at the University of Maryland European Division and my master’s degree at the University of New Mexico. I have taught, subbed, or been an aide in all grades from kindergarten through eighth. My husband and I have two grown and married children, and one rescue dog.
