Favorite Quotation: “We know that all things work for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose.” Romans: 8:28


Why I Teach:  I love teaching because it is wonderful to help students discover new things about God and the world he created.  It is also a privilege to assist children in learning to follow and enjoy God’s plan for their lives.
