I am very excited to be teaching Kindergarten at Maranatha Christian Academy! My husband, Chris, graduated from MCA after attending the school his entire life. When we were blessed with our children, Katie and Hannah, we knew that we wanted them to have the same opportunity to attend this wonderful school. After spending 12 years teaching in the public school system, I am fortunate to join the “family” of teaching staff that have been educating my daughters. I received my Bachelor’s degree from Kansas State University. I hold a teaching certificate in the states of Kansas and Missouri, where I am certified to teach Early Childhood, Elementary Education, and English as a Second Language. I have taught Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st grade. I am passionate about the primary grades because I love developing children’s natural excitement of learning. I love letting children develop at their own pace while pushing them to do their personal best and develop their God-given talents. I am looking forward to a year of excitement and adventure this year and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for me, my students, and Maranatha.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
