As a Social Studies and Physical Education teacher for 6th-8th grades my first objective is to share the love of God and model what He teaches through His Son, Jesus Christ. Throughout all areas of my teaching, Christ must be the foundation of all I do. Through this foundation, I will teach my students to develop academically, socially and emotionally. Each of these will be taught through educating my students to create new ideas, work together, grow through failure, overcome challenges, speak publicly, show effort in their work, and strive to do the best to their abilities.
My mission as a Social Studies and Physical Education teacher, along with coach and athletic director is to teach Christ as our Savior. I have dedicated my life to God and to serving children he has placed in my care. I strive to educate children by showing love, working hard, and building relationships, so my students seek to be life-long learners.
