Hello! I look forward to meeting and working with you! I grew up attending Tri-City S.D.A. School and never imagined how God would invite me back! As I have been organizing and preparing, I see how He is leading me, and He promises to do that for each of us.

I live in Midland, am a member of the Midland S.D.A. Church, have a loving husband, a teenaged son, and a furry large dog named Blizzard. I love to read, walk, bike, camp with my family, and spend time with dogs. I love children and my goal is to lead them to Jesus.

I create an environment of kindness, and collaboration, with Biblical principles as the framework for a happy daily life. I want students to ask questions, take learning risks, reflect, solve problems in a variety of ways, and see mistakes as valuable learning moments in their growth. I emphasize character development as we build strong habits of hard work, perseverance, obedience, self-discipline, and serving others.

God bless us and keep us as we work together in learning!
