Favorite scripture verse:
Micah 6:8: “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Favorite thing about working for CCS?
I enjoy the relationships I build with my students and their families and the ability to share my love of Christ with them!
Favorite learning activity:
I really enjoy our study of the 50 States! In 4th grade, students write a research report on a chosen state and then create a parade float for our State Float Parade in May. I also enjoy our Bible unit on Judges, as we learn about the Israelites’ cycle of disobedience and learn to walk in obedience to the Lord and those whom the Lord has placed in authority over us.
Fun or fascinating fact:
I have a love of travel! Some of my favorite destinations have been Israel, Panama, Glacier National Park, and Switzerland! I dream of traveling to Africa one day.
