About Me

My husband and I have four boys who attend Lincoln Christian. We enjoy hanging out together and doing a lot of different things. We love to camp, wakeboard, read, garden, travel, take care of our pet chickens and Goldendoodle. I also love to run and play volleyball.

Church: Lincoln Berean Church

Volunteer Roles: I have volunteered in different capacities at my church. I enjoy teaching at vacation bible school, I was a prayer group leader for several years for a young moms group, and now my husband and I lead a lifegroup for several couples with kids around the same ages as ours.

Philosophy of Education

I believe that all children can learn if they feel loved and safe.  Children are like sponges and are soaking up everything around them. It is my joy as a teacher to teach them not only academics but also about a God that loves them so much he died for them and wants to live with them. I believe learning is done through play. Children need to move around and use their hands to learn. It is important to let them problem solve and not do everything for them. I enjoy partnering with parents to help their child grow in who God made them to be.
