What do you love about Redwood Christian Schools?
I love that RCS is so much more than a school. We are truly a family. The teachers care deeply about their students and get to know them individually. The parents are invested in their child’s education and they also take time to get to know the teachers. I love that people connected to Redwood care for each other so well!
What motivated you to serve at Redwood Christian?
I knew that Redwood Christian School was an established school that had proven faithful to providing a Christian education for a long time. Also, they expressed a need that fit well with how God has been developing me as an educator.
What do you feel is the significance of your role at RCS?
I hope that significance is found in the way I care for the people I serve. My goal is to be helpful. Helping teachers by making sure they have the resources they need. Helping students by getting to know them and helping them when they are struggling.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to shape the overall experience of students at RCS?
I see value in fitness and taking care of the life God has granted me. So, I brought that interest to RCE by helping to start a running club for girls in grades 3-5. The girls are enjoying being part of a group and learning more about how God has made them uniquely and wonderfully.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
I believe RCS students are set apart from other students because they receive an education that is so much more than academic. At RCS they are learning to be responsible and respectful to others and their environment. And most importantly, they are learning to seek God.
The RCS tagline is “the education you TRUST for the children you LOVE.” How do you accomplish this in your role at RCS?
I help to provide a trustworthy education by researching best practices and gaining a depth of knowledge in education. I hope to gain parents’ trust by getting to know their children and their specific needs and working with them in a caring way.
What do you want students to gain from having known you?
I want students to gain a deeper understanding of God’s love for them.
What is your favorite verse?
Hebrews 4:14-16 which says ” Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. “
