Help the poor; teach; raise a family

As part of her justice and peace class, Michelle discovered a poor parish in Jamaica, West Indies.  She went there as a volunteer for a semester, then talked St. Thomas into starting a flourishing program there: trips during January term, and student teaching for education majors.  

Her first year after graduation she taught religion at Totino-Grace High School.  Then she and her husband returned to Jamaica and taught there for several years.  Returning to the Twin Cities, she taught at Hill-Brady High School and at Cretin-Durham High School.
