What Class(es) Do You Teach?
English 2, 3 & 4
I graduated from Providence Christian College with a bachelor's degree in English with an emphasis in Secondary Education and a minor in Biblical and Theological Studies. I am currently ACSI certified and am pursuing my state credential.
Share A Few Things About Yourself
Though I grew up in Michigan, all it took was a few years of immersion during college for California to get permanently into my blood! I am a passionate person about a wide range of things, from photography to swing dancing to abandoned amusement parks. I have been blessed to grow up in the Church and love being able to share my faith and interact meaningfully with students, both in the classroom and outside when I get the chance.
What Is Your Favorite Scripture?
"My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand." John 10:27
How Do You Connect Faith & Learning In Your Classroom?
Every piece of literature is written in an effort to share a message of its maker's choosing. As Christians, we are bombarded with stories and messages all day long, so to learn to think critically about each word, sentence, paragraph, and story set before us is not just an assignment, but practice for a way of life. In my classes we have the opportunity to test each work's truth against that of scripture and reap the benefits of insight into situations which we may have never lived or understood ourselves if they had not been shared with us by the author.
