I am honored to be the principal at St. John the Baptist Catholic School. I believe elementary schools are one of the most important institutions in our lives because we have the opportunity to place students on a trajectory to success at an early age. I embrace St. John’s mission to empower all learners to become the best Christ-centered version of themselves by integrating Christian virtues, 21st century learning, and service.
I grew up in the Como Park neighborhood of St. Paul and in White Bear Lake. My early career included jobs working with adults with developmental disabilities, incarcerated men, and as a teaching assistant. I began teaching physical education in 2009 at Our Lady of Grace Catholic School in Castro Valley, CA. Since then, I have held jobs in Catholic schools as both a physical education teacher and a principal. I joined St. John the Baptist Catholic School in July of 2020.
I hold a masters degree in history from the Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley, a masters degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from the University of St. Thomas, and a certificate in Learning Technology Leadership and Innovation from the University of St. Thomas.
Please reach out to me with any questions you have about our school.
