I began teaching at Grace Christian School in 2015 and teach 4th, 5th, and 6th grade along with instrumental music and choir.
I tell my students that I love to teach because I love to talk, but the truth is I love to make emotional/spiritual connections with the students as they learn new things about life. This year, one of the biggest blessings for me has been teaching Bible. While I have taught Sunday School since I was a teen, the weight of responsibility in communicating truth can be intimidating. I have found that Bible class is when my students feel the most free to share what is going on in their lives.
Favorite book: The Last Sin Eater by Francine Rivers
Hobbies: Biking, musical theater, photography, grandkids, watching football (especially my son Joe)
