I am very excited to be teaching 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 was fortunate to join the “family” of Maranatha teachers in the fall of 2015 and it felt like coming home.
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 children from birth through 9th grade. I am also certified to teach children with English as a Second Language. I am passionate about providing a safe and warm environment for students to develop a love for learning. I love letting children learn and grow 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.
