Binge watching tv shows. I also love to travel and go to theme parks.

To inspire students to find as much joy in learning as I do. I want students to find school fun and to show them how fun it can be while accomplishing all they need to understand.
Why do you love CKS?
I am brand new, and I just keep telling everyone how welcoming every single staff and faculty member truly is! I have known Fr. Len my whole life, and he knew I would love the school. He was correct. From how much fun the administration is to how kind and generous all the teachers and assistants have been, I can’t express how honored and blessed I feel to be a part of such a warm and welcoming community and family!
