Second Grade Teacher

As a second grade teacher, working with very impressionable children, it is my responsibility to challenge and encourage these children to learn and build upon their gifts and talents from a Christ-centered perspective.  As I prepare them for third grade, it is my goal that they use all that God has given them to honor and glorify Him, rather than themselves.  I pray daily for my students, that they will know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.

Eighth Grade Homeroom Teacher, Middle School Science, Sixth - Seventh Grade Math & Algebra I

Each child is a unique creation in which God has placed various strengths and abilities, as well as weaknesses, which are to be used throughout their lives to bring glory to Him. As educators, I believe we should be turning to God for His assistance to teach the necessary information to each child according to their individual needs and abilities. We should be like a translucent vessel who is constantly asking God to fill us with the resources we need to pour out upon our students. All the while, allowing the light of Christ to shine through us.
