I LOVE praying with my students and teaching them about Jesus. Having taught in public school, I realize what a blessing it is to be able to pray and share the gospel in school. I also love teaching my kindergarteners how to read!

This school has always been so special to me, since I was a student here many years ago. My fourth grade teacher at Immanuel (now CCA) was my inspiration for becoming a teacher, and my dream was to teach in a Christian school. What a blessing it is to serve in that ministry today!
My classroom Bible verse is one of my favorite verses. Psalm 118:24: This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. We begin each day by singing this verse. It’s a great way to start the day!!
