About Mrs. Denton: 

I grew up in Cincinnati and am the oldest of three girls. I come from a long line of teachers- including my grandmother who taught at St. Ursula Villa in Cincinnati until she was seventy-two years old. My mother still teaches at Nativity school in Cincinnati, where I went to grade school.  I graduated from University of Dayton and earned my Masters in Education from Indiana Wesleyan.

This is my eleventh year teaching in Catholic schools. I’m married and have a sweet rescue dog named Enza. I love walking Enza, travelling and teaching middle school students! When I first moved to Indianapolis, I remember driving past St. Thomas and thinking that I just belonged here. I am so grateful for the STA community, parents and students.
