University of Nebraska - Lincoln 2017
I grew up in Lincoln. I have three sisters and we are all very close. I come from a family of educators. Many people in my family are involved or have been involved in teaching in some way.
Church: Cornerstone Baptist Church
Volunteer Roles: : I have helped in a few different ways at church. I have been a worker in the nursery, helped with Kids4Truth, helped in VBS, and taught Sunday school for 4th-6th grade. This year, I will be helping with pre-k-1st grade Sunday school class. In Kearney I was part of Truth Expedition at church.
Philosophy of Education
I believe God made every child different, special, and unique, with unique gifts. Children need to interact with each other and the content to learn. Children need to move and wiggle, as well as learn to be still and calm. Most importantly, each child needs to feel loved, comfortable, and safe in a learning environment. God tells us to “train up a child in the way he should go” and I believe Christian education really impacts a child in a way of partnering with families to follow this command from God.
