I was born and raised in Houston, TX. After attending college in Nebraska and then teaching in Colorado for five years, I returned to Texas and have lived in Dallas since 1992. My husband, Michael, and I enjoy visiting our families, hiking, and laughing.
My years of teaching have been spent in first, second, and third grades. In addition to a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Concordia University in Nebraska, I have a Master of Education degree from UNT and a Master of Reading Education degree from TWU. I am a member of the Lutheran Education Association (LEA).
I enjoy being involved in both children’s ministries and women’s Bible study at Zion Lutheran Church. I also regularly visit residents at a nursing home in the area and look forward to doing this again after the pandemic.
I am blessed to be called to the teaching ministry at Zion Lutheran School. It is a privilege to share the love of Jesus with the students and teach them about the Christian faith through the study of God’s Word each day. In addition to this high priority, I seek to encourage my students to be self-motivated and self-directed learners, to provide challenges that will develop perseverance, to guide them in developing both academic and social skills, and to encourage their personal creativity. It is my desire that my students remember this about me: She loves Jesus, and she loves me!
Live and teach in the grace of the Father, in the love of the Lord Jesus, and in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. (author unknown)
