I am truly blessed to be part of the Aquinas family this year.  I am excited to grow in my faith and help all of my students reach their goals. I know every student is capable of learning and I am looking forward to providing the necessary tools and experiences to set the students up for a very successful year.


Welcome fantastic fourth graders!

The school year is off to a great start!  I am so excited to have a wonderful class full of fantastic readers that are being led by God’s grace.

We are going to have an outstanding year of reading, math, science experiments, exploring our state of Virginia, as well as growing spiritually.
