Teaching Experience:  12 years

Years at St. John’s:  6 years

Favorite Bible Verse:  Joshua 24:15 As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

When I graduated from college, God was calling me to teach in the public school system.  After we had our first child I was able to stay at home and raise our three children.  After our youngest, Joshua, entered 1st grade I went back to teaching full time.  This time God was calling me to teach at the Lutheran School my children were attending.  My passion has always been to help educate children and to share my love of learning with them.  I love encouraging my students each and every day to grow in their faith, love, and knowledge of our Lord and Savior and the world He has created for them.

The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful husband and three terrific children.  I love spending time with my family and friends.  I also enjoy organizing, traveling, scrapbooking, cleaning, and spending time floating in our backyard pool.

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with the opportunity to be part of the St. John’s family. What an honor it is to teach His little ones here at this amazing school!

One fun fact:  I have 3 children and they were born three years and a day apart.  Their birthdays are May 19th, May 20th, and May 21st.
