Favorite saint and why:
St. Isidore of Seville for being the Patron Saint of Computers and the Internet.  Many times, we are swamped and overwhelmed by scientific and technological advances and can lose much of our understanding love for one another. St. Isidore reminds us of this, and I try to pray for his intervention often!  Also, I help oversee the IT department at NDA, and so prayers to him can only help if an issue arises:)  

Favorite moment at NDA:
Graduation of both the 8th grade class and senior class each year!   
Qualities your favorite teacher possessed:  
My favorite teacher (3rd grade teacher Ms. Pilzecker) challenged me to try my best even when it was not easy.  She also helped me think and reflect about how I need to treat others. She was my inspiration for becoming a teacher.  Love her!  Thanks, Ms. Pilzecker.   
Favorite activity outside NDA:
Eating dinner with my family: husband, Michael and children: Zoe, Joseph, and Andrew
Favorite place in northwest Ohio:
Toledo Zoo and any of the Metroparks in the area
My advice to a student at NDA would be to find something to be involved with at NDA.  I am an alum of NDA, and my one regret is that I did not try out for our musicals when I knew singing was something I loved to do. There are so many varied clubs, sports, theatre opportunities, etc. here, that every student should find something of interest.  Four years will go by very quickly!
