34 years with Aquinas Catholic Schools
Class Music K4-6th grade
I grew up in La Crosse attending Catholic schools - Holy Trinity, Aquinas and Viterbo, all staffed by the wonderful F.S.P.A. Sisters. I will begin my 31st year at St. Patrick next fall. I have also taught at Blessed Sacrament, St. Thomas More, and Aquinas Middle School. In addition, I taught piano part-time in the Prep. Department at Viterbo University.
While teaching music is my job, it is also my passion. I am an Apple Annie, performing with a wonderful group of women around the area. I direct the Trinity Singers at Holy Trinity Church. I am a member of the Coulee Region Steel Drum Band. I am also an adjudicator for WSMA Solo/Ensemble Festivals.
Outside of music activities, I enjoy sports, gardening and reading. I am on the Executive Board for the Luxembourg American Descendants Society.
I have two daughters and four grandchildren. I am the 5th in a family of 8 children. I also have two cats.
