I love being with my family! I love watching their games, going on vacations, being active and just spending time with them!

Fun Fact:
I LOVE Hot Tamales

What I love about my position:
I love the excitement and enthusiasm of this age, and how much growth happens in these sweet kiddos in just a year. I love to see the joy in their faces when they understand something. Most of all, I love teaching them about the love of Jesus and feel honored to be a part of their lives.

Bible Verse with special personal meaning:
Jeremiah 29:11, “I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” This verse has become more and more valuable in my faith every year. So often it’s hard to see the “why’s” of where God is leading us but this verse constantly reminds me that He is sovereign, all knowing and He has the best plans for each of us. Our God is a God of love and our hope is in Him alone!
