What I love about St. James: My favorite thing about St. James is the way our school feels like a big family. There's a strong sense of community and faith here that I really love.
Favorite thing is about teaching: The best thing about being a teacher is helping students accomplish what they think may be impossible. Seeing little faces light up with understanding and excitement for learning is simply the best. I love seeing the growth my kids make each year, and I love that there's always something new to learn.
