The best part of following Jesus is…
His gifts of hope and light in a broken world, as well as the gift of eternal life.

What do you love most about teaching?
The energy and laughter of my young students. Young children are constantly learning and it is fun to share that joy with them. They love Jesus and their friends with an innocence that is contagious, we should all love Jesus and one another the way they do!

What is a favorite memory of Immanuel Lutheran School?
My favorite memory of Immanuel Lutheran School is my own children attending the Early Childhood program and the opportunities I had to volunteer, as well as the amazing Family events! My daughters came home sharing the rich experiences from school and even prayed for us. Due to the love of learning and praying that was instilled in them, we have been blessed to call Immanuel our church home for over 10 years!

Why does teaching/working at Immanuel Lutheran School appeal to you?
I am drawn to the Immanuel community as well as the opportunity to provide Early Childhood students with the same rich experiences that my daughters were given. I am grateful to share the gifts God has given me by serving as an Early Childhood teacher in my home church.
