I received my bachelor of arts in elementary education from Central Methodist University. This is my 16th year of teaching, and my 7th year at ILS. I have taught a variety of classes and grades from preschool to eighth grade. I teach at Immanuel because I believe a solid Christian education is invaluable.
My favorite scripture is Philippians 4:13, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." I chose this as my confirmation verse many years ago, and I still find it helpful to know that I do not have to rely on my strength alone, but the mighty strength of my Savior.
My husband David and I have been married for 20 years. We have three children, Tad, Deanna, and Bree. In my spare time, I love to read and cook!
