"I came to teach at St. Vincent-St. Mary High School right out of college in the fall of 1971 just as the merger of St. Vincent and St. Mary was in its initial stages. From the beginning, I have enjoyed working with the students in an environment that is academically rich and spiritually grounded. Over the years I have come to know many of the families that make up the STVM community, and I feel that I have been blessed to work with people who are so generous, caring, and supportive."
