Share A Few Things About Yourself
I was born and raised in Sioux Center, IA and my family still lives there.  I love to be outside, especially going hiking and visiting National Parks around the US.  I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, along with creating new art projects in my spare time.  I spent a semester studying abroad in the Netherlands which fueled my excitement to explore new places and people - one of the reasons why I accepted the position thousands of miles away from home -a new adventure.

What is Your Favorite Scripture?
Isaiah 40 :31

How do you Connect Faith & Learning in Your Classroom?
I am connecting faith and learning in my classroom by helping the students discover all of the many different talents and gifts that God has given them.  At the beginning of the year every student created a different bird or butterfly that is hanging up in the art classroom.  This is to remind the students that we are unique and individual but God chose us all to be his children and we need to learn to work together.
