I am married to Tim and we have 3 boys: Dylan, Tommy, and Sam, 1 who graduated from LCS and 2 that attend LCS. I was blessed to stay home with them for 10 years, until going back to teaching. They are very involved in boy scouts, baseball, football, and church.
Their activities keep us very busy, but I also spend my free time with friends and family, small groups, baking, running and leading a girls Bible study.

Philosophy of Education
I believe as an educator that my role is to serve as a guide and leader to the children that God entrusts to me. My first goal is to teach them about the love and gift of salvation that Jesus has for each of them. I want them to learn to love the Lord with all their heart, soul, and mind, and to love their neighbor as themself. My second goal is to help them develop a life-long love of learning by making learning fun, active, and meaningful.
I believe that God created us all special and unique, and therefore, no two children are exactly the same, or learn the same. For that reason, I have a lot of variety in our classroom, from whole group, to small groups, to partner/individual work time, as well as hands-on, musical, kinesthetic, and visual activities throughout the day.
I encourage academic excellence because we want to give our best to God everyday!
