Outside the classroom I enjoy spending time with my husband Steve and our daughter, Ellie. In my free time I love to exercise, garden, watch sporting events (Go Cardinals, Blues, & Packers), photography, fishing, and traveling.
Philosophy of Teaching:
My teaching philosophy focuses on encouraging students as they grow spiritually, emotionally, and socially in a Christ Centered classroom and understanding each student’s learning ability to allow each student to achieve their highest potential.
My classroom goals are to provide a safe and Christ Centered classroom where students will always feel comfortable, loved, and know that they are forgiven. I will maintain high expectations, strive to hold my students accountable for their work, make myself available when they need help, and prepare them for middle school. Finally, I want my students to have fun while they learn and to continue to grow in their faith in Christ Jesus.
Joshua 1:9 Be strong and courageous, do not be terrified, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.
