Welcome back and I hope everyone had a wonderful and creative summer. I feel so blessed to be a part of the staff here at St. Patrick’s School, teaching kindergarten through 8th grade art as well as kindergarten through 8th grade computers. This is my 12th year here at St. Pats and I am looking forward to another wonderful year.
Some information about myself and my family you might not know. I have lived in the area for almost 26 years. My husband, Merlin is currently helping farm his family’s land, plus is the chemical plant manager for AG Valley COOP in Indianola. When he is not busy working he loves restoring old cars. I also have three daughters named Micah, Noelle, and Stacia.
Micah is 25 years old and currently living by Mancelona, Michigan. She is really enjoying herself up there spending time with her husband and 11 year old son Anthony. Micah also found it in her heart to bless a local family through adoption. We are so glad the family wants us in their lives. We are now blessed with 3 granddaughters age 11 and almost 4 years old. We are happy to have such a wonderful extended family.
My daughter Noelle is 23 years old and served our country in the Marine Corps for 4 years and now lives with my husband and I on our farm outside of McCook. We are so proud of her and thankful to have her home. She is currently working for Parker as a fork lift operator for the mill in the plant.
My youngest daughter, Stacia is 19 and lives in McCook and currently works for Walmart as a cashier. She also keeping busy with her new puppy who is so tiny compared to our dogs. Also, I can’t forget my very large dogs Miura who is now 4 years old and Noelle’s dog named Khal who is now one year old. They both are Great Danes and keep my family entertained by their silly shenanigans. I also have a cat named Rue along with several ducks and chickens.
I have had a very busy summer. I was blessed with an opportunity to co-create the WE ARE ONE mural at Sehnert’s Bakery as well as the banners displayed through the summer. When I was not doing that I would be taking care of our very large garden. Our family did find time to go to the lake this summer which was a lot of fun. When I was not working on school or home projects, I would keep myself busy working on some of my own artwork. My favorite things to do is making pottery on the pottery wheel.
I am looking forward to another creative year. See you around the school.
