Collette is a new addition to the Purcell Marian family as an English teacher for the Freshmen class. Born and raised in Miami, Florida, Collette is a proud alumna of the University of Miami (Go Canes!), where she graduated with a dual degree in English Creative Writing and American Studies. She also has her master’s from National University, California. She taught both middle and high school grade levels in Little Havana, Florida, before moving to Cincinnati. If Collette wasn’t teaching English, she would want to teach Art. She loves creating things with her hands and loves to see where students’ creativity leads them. Passions outside the classroom include diving into a good book, knitting, and catching up on the newest anime series.
