Why do you feel called into Christian Education?
God is always at work in our lives. I love that I am able to share the love of Jesus with the children I work with all day long.

Why did you choose the teaching profession?
I come from a family of teachers and knew from an early age that teaching is what I wanted to get into.

What do you love most about teaching?
I love to see the joy and excitement on the faces of the children when they problem solve and figure things out and make connections to what we are learning about.

Why does teaching/working at Immanuel Lutheran School appeal to you?
Working at Immanuel is like a big extended family. The staff and families are all great to work with.
