What is/are your role(s) at Redwood Christian Schools?
I have the privilege of teaching 2nd grade.
What do you love about Redwood Christian Schools?
Redwood Christian Schools provides a safe, loving, supportive learning environment that teaches a Christian worldview. I love the family-type atmosphere between staff and families.
Why do you like teaching at RCS?
Teaching at Redwood Christian is like coming home for me. I am an alumna of RCS (class of ’92). My desire has always been to teach in a Christian school. I like the family atmosphere and the desire for students and parents to know God through the education of their child.
What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to shape the overall experience of students at RCS?
Next to being a wife and mom, I love being an educator. Teaching is a passion God has given me. I love seeing the “light” come on in a child’s mind as he or she is learning. I have a Master’s degree in Elementary Education and enjoy attending current education seminars and conferences to continue my learning as a teacher.
What sets RCS students apart from students in other schools?
RCS students love coming to school because they know they are coming to a safe, loving, supportive environment. We have amazing families who partner with the staff to provide a solid, Christian education.
The RCS tagline is “the education you TRUST for the children you LOVE.” How do you accomplish this in your role at RCS?
As a teacher, I believe it is my calling to work with students and families to give every student in my classroom an individualized, Christ-centered program.
What do you want students to gain from having known you?
I want my students to know that the Bible is truth, that God is trustworthy and good in all things, and that Jesus loves them more than I do. I want my students to know that mistakes are okay – we learn from our mistakes, which helps “grow our brains.”
What is your favorite verse?
Psalm 139:13-14a ESV “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”
