Bachelor’s in Elementary Education and

I believe in teaching each child to their own individual strengths and needs. It is a priority of mine to build a classroom environment that is encouraging and accepting of each child's unique story and attributes. I feel honored to play a small role in each of my students’ lives and I take that responsibility to heart. It is my strong belief that education extends way past the school walls. It is my goal to include Christ-centered life lessons within our curriculum daily to help build students with strong moral character in addition to being lifelong learners.
