My love for children and love of teaching brought me to the classroom. It is a wonderful privilege to be a part of a child’s learning experience and to watch them grow with the Lord at a young age and it brings me joy to share my faith in Jesus with my students each day. It is also a joy seeing my students inspired to live their lives for Jesus and becoming more like HIM. The joy and happiness my students have and share with others is amazing! I strive to create an environment where my students feel comfortable and loved in my classroom and I also want to see them grow closer in their relationship with Jesus and have fun learning new things about God’s World and preparing for a life of service in God’s Kingdom. Besides teaching, I enjoy exercising, reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.
