“God has gifted me with a love for children. It is my belief that each and every child has the potential to learn and succeed.  As a classroom teacher, I will do everything on my part to ensure each student’s success. Each child’s success is my success ! Since I began teaching in the fall of 1986, I have developed a great love for the students that God brings our way. I still feel that “calling” now 30 years later. Having the privilege to share about God and His truths in every aspect of my teaching is ingrained in me.”
