It warms my heart to see them soak up the Bible stories. It's a thrill to see them start reading and writing. Every class is different, but they all like our trips to the pumpkin farm, planetarium, and Wildlife Prairie Park. I think the parents always enjoy our Christmas plates and performances at the Christmas concert.
Students should have the opportunity to pray and hear God's word daily to foster a lifelong desire to know God. I want to build respectful relationships with students and parents that encourage successful learning in a safe and orderly environment. Finally, I try to collaborate with colleagues for best practices in instruction and assessment.
WHY YOU WANTED TO BECOME A TEACHER
I wanted to be a teacher since I was in first grade. I had a fabulous teacher named Mrs. Miller who made school so interesting and fun. When I was in third grade, I came to her room and led a reading group. At that point I was hooked.
Summers and holidays are spent visiting or traveling with my husband and two children, Kyle and Kelly. I love my fairy garden, going to water parks and trying to catch up on scrap booking. My weakness is shopping at boutiques and gift shops.
