About Me: Growing up in Dyker Heights, St. Ephrem School/Catholic Academy has always and will always feel like home to me. I spent ten years here as a student, graduating in 1998. I started teaching at St. Ephrem in 2008 and even though it is not something I envisioned myself doing while attending the school, here I am ten years later. The community of St. Ephrem continues to play a huge role in my life. It is truly an honor to teach our students every day and to help guide them on their journey through the first part of their academic careers.
