Foreign Language

I started teaching at Bishop Kelly in the fall of 2011 and have been teaching for a total of 7 years , 5 of those at BK. I have a Bachelors Degree in Spanish Language and Elementary Education from Gonzaga University (Go zags!) and a Masters Degree from St. Louis University Madrid, where I lived for nearly 3 years.

In my free time, I enjoy keeping in touch with many friends around the country and world. I also enjoy being outdoors, staying active and exercising, and of course, traveling! I love to read, spend time with family, especially my husband Tom, and my sister and her family here in Boise, and an occasional trip home to Klamath Falls, Oregon.

The relationships I have with students and fellow teachers, and the smaller, family feel of the school that makes me feel like everyone truly cares.

Prayer of St. Teresa of Ávila: Nada te turbe, Nada te espante, Todo se pasa, Dios no se muda. La paciencia Todo lo alcanza; Quien a Dios tiene Nada le falta: Sólo Dios basta. Let nothing disturb you, Let nothing frighten you, Everything passes, God never changes. Patience obtains all things; Whoever has God lacks nothing, Only God is enough.
