I began teaching at BK in 1994 and have a total of 33 years teaching experience in Catholic education. I received a B.A. in English in 1973 and an M.S. in English Education in 1975. In addition to face-to-face teaching, I have been an online teacher for IDLA for almost 9 years and received a Best Practices Award in 2008. I was also named the Idaho Human Rights Educator of the Year by the Wassmuth Center for Human Rights in 2012.

I love teaching at Bishop Kelly because we have the opportunity to live out God’s love in a unique way. We meet people “where they are” and embrace that.

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, there will be peace. Jimi Hendrix
