About Me

My husband Cory and I are both graduates of Lincoln Christian School and are so thankful for the solid foundation we received!  Cory teaches at North Star High School.  We have three sons.  Two of them graduated from Lincoln Christian and are currently furthering their education in college and professional school.  Our youngest still attends Lincoln Christian.  After earning my bachelor’s degree in math from UNL, I worked from home, doing bookkeeping and medical transcription for 12 years, allowing me to be home to raise my sons.  I then went back to school at Doane to earn my Med in curriculum and instruction so that I could teach at Lincoln Christian.  Currently, I am continuing my education at UNL by taking graduate math courses, which enables me to be a qualified adjunct instructor for dual-credit courses.  I am so thankful for the opportunity to teach in a place where I can openly share my faith with the students and grow together with them.  My free time is spent attending sporting events at school, walking and biking and doing Bible studies.

Philosophy of Education

As an LCS graduate, I appreciate the impact that a Christian school can have on students’ lives.  As a mom, I love knowing that each subject taught at Lincoln Christian is taught through the lens of God’s Word.  As a teacher, I take that charge seriously, desiring that my students will understand that all Truth originates from God.  I believe that God created mathematics as the language for our universe and also for our enjoyment. I am saddened by the culture of negativity often associated with math, where some students believe it’s not fun or cool to study math. While I realize that not all students will love math, I do believe that every student can appreciate its beauty, importance and usefulness in their lives and as a result come to worship the Creative God who ordered our universe!
