Education: Bachelors in Human Services from Grace Bible College (now Grace Christian University)
Experience: Began working with New Era Christian’s ESS program in September of 2016. Spent 2 years working with high school students at Wedgwood Christian Youth and Family Services, 1 year as a librarian for North Godwin Elementary, and 8 years working in a self-contained regional emotionally impaired program for Godwin Heights Public.
Favorite Bible Verses: I’ll narrow it down to just a couple, but I could go on and on. Romans 8:18 – For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Ephesians 5:1-2 – Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.
What do you like best about being at NECS? I love building relationships in a small school environment and working with many of the same students year after year. This allows for deep conversations and teaching that goes beyond academics, including helping students understand Biblical truths and discover their God-given strengths. I enjoy the variety that comes from teaching children in different grades throughout each day.
