About Me

I enjoy reading, baking, camping, traveling and sewing and photography when I have the time and money. I enjoy taking students to the Ingalls Homestead in De Smet, South Dakota each summer. I thoroughly enjoy serving on the ministry team for the Awana Missionaries for Nebraska and helping them with events. My family includes my mom, my five brothers and their families. I have 13 nieces and nephews (4 are married) and 3 great nieces. My dad, sister and brother-in-law are enjoying Heaven.

Church: Country Bible Church

Volunteer Roles: Sparks Director in Awana

Philosophy of Education

God has called me to be a teacher. I am grateful for my Christian education background and believe that I am the person that I am today because of the godly men and women that influenced my life during my junior high, high school and college years. I believe that God needs to be the center of everything that we do. It is a privilege to integrate God’s Word into each subject as I teach it. I use a variety of teaching methods to meet the needs of the students God has given me.
