Why are you in Christian education?

I have always worked hard to not only provide a solid foundation in reading and math but to make the classroom a safe environment where they are loved. When this happens, learning is easier for the kids and they want to do their best.

Being a teacher at Grace has added another level to my philosophy. I have a very strong desire to incorporate God's love into all parts of the day. I strive to provide a very academic classroom saturated with not only best instructional practices the knowledge of God's presence.

Now, my goal is to not only plant seeds academically but spiritually so they will know Christ as their personal Savior. I want to help the kids go to Heaven one day.

What sets GCS apart?

The number one mission is to teach the children how much God loves them and to prepare them to be adults sharing God's love. Everyone truly is kind and has the same goal. They model what Christians should be like in the workforce.

Why are you thankful to be at GCS?

Teaching at Grace is on of my biggest blessings in life! It is refreshing to be able to teach in a Christian environment, spread God's love in all academic areas, and receive support from all of my coworkers. God is moving tremendously and I feel honored to be a part of it!

Statement of Faith

I was raised in a Quaker Church where I received a firm foundation in Biblical principals. As an adult, I started attending Bennett Baptist where I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God, came to Earth as a baby, and died on the cross for our sins. As a Christian, I strive to serve Him in all that I do and when I fail, ask for His forgiveness and cleansing. I know He is with me all of the time and guides my path daily.
