I am passionate about spending time with my family adventuring and exploring the outdoors with them as much as I can. I enjoy reading, cooking and hiking.
Philosophy of Teaching:
I believe in showing students God’s design of the world around us. I want to teach them to create as we were formed in the image of the Great Creator. I believe that learning takes place throughout life and beyond the classroom walls. I use a project-based system of inquiry to engage the students on different dynamic levels and learning styles.
First and foremost that they are loved. By God and the Immanuel Community. Secondly to equip the students for their journey ahead and teach them to be problem solvers. I want them to know that challenges, obstacles, set-backs and “failures” are only a building block on their path to success. I hope all my students will be passionate lifelong learners who boldly pursue truth and information.
