My name is Miss. C and I am the 6th grade teacher at St. Rose of Lima School. I graduated from Penn State University in 2013 (Go Lions)! It is my third year with Independence Mission and my second at St. Rose. I grew up a few miles away in Upper Darby and currently live in Phoenixville with my Fiance and cat, Sam. I love school (my favorite subjects are Math and Science)! I love photography, interior design, art, the environment, and going hiking. I try to share creativity with my students as much as possible. This year I am looking forward to creating a positive academic environment for our scholars!

Please reach out with any questions!
