I just love teaching in the lower grade classroom! I currently teach Kindergarten through second grade (2018-2019 school year). The K - 2 classroom is very hands on in all subject areas and I use a variety of instructional methods to help students master foundational skills. Helping children explore the world around them and take pride in their learning achievements is my greatest joy. I feel blessed to be able to share basic Biblical truths in all aspects of teaching.
I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Southern Adventist College. I received a Masters degree in Curriculum from La Sierra University in California. I also has certification for teaching Kindergarten.
I taught for 2 years in Alabama before moving to Sequatchie Valley. I taught grades 1 - 4 in the Dunlap Adventist Christian School from 1988 until 1997 when I took off for 14 years to raise my children. During my years at home I remained active at the school by working in the library and teaching art. I returned to teaching K-2 in 2010.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, cooking, scrapbooking and card making. I also enjoy spending time with my young adult children and staying connected with former students.
