  • My Story

    I come from a family of teachers and knew from a young age that God had called me to be a teacher. I began my teaching career with a small chalkboard and a “classroom” filled with stuffed animals. I progressed to teaching the children that I babysat, teaching Sunday School, and helping peers with their homework. I have had the opportunity to teach in public and private schools, as well as early childhood through post-graduate students. Teaching is my dream job!
