3rd Grade Teacher
Ms. Willits was born and raised in Oakland but has spent most of her adult life traveling the world! She is honored to return to St. Jarlath, her former elementary school, as the new third grade teacher. St. Jarlath provided Ms.Willits with a strong foundation in life values and beliefs that has followed her throughout life.
Ms. Willits received her teaching credential and Masters of Science in Education from Dominican University of California while working for United Airlines. Her airline career offered endless opportunities to learn from different cultures and nations, and at the end of the day, provided her with knowledge that we are all one.
She taught second grade at a public school in Marin County, encouraging students to embrace mind, body and spirit while engaging in academic and emotional growth. Her goal is to continue to guide and prepare St. Jarlath’s students with essential skills as they become successful learners.
Ms. Willits spends most of her free time with friends and family, is an enthusiastic yogi and loves to dance when she has the chance!
“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.” Thich Nhat Hanh
