Years of teaching: 4



What is your favorite thing about teaching?

I love getting to explore the world with children and I especially love when I get to show them God's presence in all of Creation.

Who/what inspired you to become a teacher?

When I first starting working in childcare, I couldn't picture myself in a classroom. My friend and supervisor, Sherri Hu, was convinced God was calling me to be a teacher, even when I didn't. Sherri's confidence in me and her unconditionally loving manner with children was infectiously inspiring.

Can you share any favorite quotes?

"But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.

I grew up around horses and I love working with them!

If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would LOVE to learn Mandarin! I lived in Taiwan for the 2 years and learned just enough Mandarin to get by, but I would love more.
