What would the students be surprised to find out about you? Students might be surprised to find out that I have run three half marathons and the full Chicago marathon, completed in 2012. All races were really fun experiences that helped me to know my own strength and perseverance. 

Is there a quote or saying that you live your life by?  A quote, more prayer, that inspires me often is from St. Ignatius of Loyola: "Take, Lord, receive all my liberty, my memory, my understanding, my whole will, all that I have and all that I possess. You gave it all to me, Lord; I give it all back to you. Do with it as you will, according to your good pleasure." This prayer continues to challenge me to see all as gift from God and to offer it back to God each day.

I would like our students, staff, and families to know how incredibly blessed our family is to be a part of this community. We are so thankful for the support, kindness, and good will shown to our family- especially our son, John.
