What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I teach 5th grade.
What do you love about your role(s) at RCS?
I love how we incorporate who God is and His design in every subject matter that we teach at Redwood Christian Schools. I also love that we are a huge family, who desire to take care of one another. I like teaching at Redwood because I enjoy making an impact in my students lives beyond the subject matter that I teach. When I became a teacher, I knew I wanted to return to my alma mater and impact my students the way my teachers impacted my life.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
RCS students love Christ and desire to make Him known both on and off campus! They desire to help one another and come alongside when needed!
How do you inspire your students?
My experience in school was riddled with struggle and determination, but with certain teachers I had at RCS, those experiences lead to falling in love with certain subjects. My struggle and then love for these subjects is unique in a way that I can help others who struggle begin to “love” their subjects even just a little. God made each one with unique qualities for the calling He has for our futures!
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I want my students to know that first and foremost I love the Lord and am a follower of Christ. Secondly, I love them and will do what I can to help them accomplish their goals. Third, I am always there for them, even when they leave my class!
What is your favorite verse?
2 Corinthians 12:9a “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’”
