What do you love most about teaching?
Ms. Ruppel enjoys teaching 5th grade, because she loves helping them to become independent learners and get ready for middle school. She loves teaching because it’s more than just a “job.” It’s a ministry. No two days are alike, and it is a privilege to work with students as they grow academically and spiritually.

What does Immanuel mean to you?
Immanuel feels like a big family. It’s a place where families, students, and faculty support and encourage one another. It is a privilege to share the Good News with the families in our care.

The best part about following Jesus is…
Knowing that no matter what circumstances you are going through, we know that our God is bigger and greater than all of it. He will give us joy in our journey and peace during our tribulations.
