I have lived in Stamford all of my life and have been a parishioner of St. Cecilia Church, with my husband, daughters and grandchildren. I am grateful for the 17 years that I worked at St. Cecilia Elementary school. I feel very blessed to be a member of  the faculty of The Catholic Academy of Stamford.


My children attended Catholic schools and were given a wonderful foundation to their education. They fostered many close friendships and still keep in close contact with those individuals.


I am blessed to work with many different children every day. It gives me so much pleasure when I see just how artistic they can be.
