What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I am the Director of RCS Home School (Private Satellite Program) and middle school teacher.
What do you love about your role(s) at RCS?
I love that Redwood is a family. We all work together well and complement each other. When you are hurting or in need of help you can count on any one of the staff/teachers/admin to talk to you and pray with you. We all love what we do and most of all we love the Lord.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
The students at RCS really care for other students. They are concerned when they are absent or have been gone even for a day. The kids can talk about God without fear of being put down for their faith.
How do you inspire your students?
I inspire my students by encouraging them. God has made each of us uniquely different and we all have different talents and abilities that He gave us. First, having been a struggling and socially and academically student, through my younger years, I feel I can bring true empathy to my students. God does not not make a mistake with who we are, even if we have to work harder. Secondly, I care for them and want them to succeed. Finally, I also want my students to know that God and I are always there for them.
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I would like the students first of all to know that God loves them so much. Secondly, that I care for them and want them to succeed. I would also want them to know that God and I are always there for them.
What is your favorite verse?
Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”
