Ever since I was a young eighth grade student, I enjoyed working with kids younger than me in our buddy reading program at the school. This desire to work with young kids and later young men and women continued as a camp counselor, tutor, volunteer and ultimately as a substitute and full time teacher. I believe that young adults bring out the best in adults, and it’s a privilege and a pleasure to get to work with them every day on the skills of writing, reading, and thinking about ways in which to be a better member of society. I have worked with kids in the classroom, on the stage, and on the playing field, and I’m very excited about the prospect of continuing to engage children in the St. Therese Community.
