I have been teaching at Venerini since 1993. I received my B.A. in Education with a minor in French Education from Anna Maria College and my M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instructional Technology from Framingham State College. I am certified to teach in Grades K - 8.
Venerini Academy is a second home to me because I began my education at Venerini Academy as a Kindergarten student and graduated from its high school in 1968. I truly believe in the philosophy of Rosa Venerini and admire her as a pioneer in education for young women. When my son, Paul, became school age, my first choice was Venerini. Paul, and my daughter, Jennifer, both graduated from Venerini Academy. Paul continued his education at St. John's High School and graduated from Nichols College with a B.S. in Management Information Systems. Paul is employed at Worcester Academy as Network Administrator in Technology. Jennifer continued her education at Notre Dame Academy and Providence College majoring in Accounting. She received her MBA at Providence and is now a CPA. Jennifer began her career at PriceWaterhouseCooper in Boston, MA. and is now Accounting Manager at HubSpot in Cambridge, MA.
I teach Language Arts in Grades 6 and 8 and Literature in Grade 8. Teaching Language Arts is a truly a challenge today because of Instant Messaging, texting, etc. I love teaching Literature, especially introducing 8th grade students to William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.
I live in Worcester with my husband, Arthur. We both enjoy spending time at the Cape, reading, and having dinner with family and friends!
