God has given me the special privilege of teaching children in Christian schools for the past 28 years, and for that I am very thankful. It has been amazing to see how much each child can grow mentally, physically, and, most importantly, spiritually during a school year!
My husband and I lived in the Midwest until we relocated to Florida, where I taught at Pensacola Christian Academy. My responsibilities there included mentoring at least two student teachers each year and working as an editor for ABeka Book. We have moved to the Maple Valley area to be close to family, and I am looking forward to continuing to serve Christ at Rainier Christian.
