The best part about following Jesus is knowing He is always there for me – no matter what I am going through or what is happening in this world, He is right beside me.

Why do you feel called into Christian education?
I became a Lutheran teacher because I grew up in Lutheran schools and wanted to impact students the way my life was impacted.

What do you love most about teaching?
The thing I love most about teaching students at ILS is sharing the love of Jesus with them every day as well as guiding them to become life-long learners.
