Kindergarten -- Philippians 4:13 – I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.

Everything that I need to know I learned in kindergarten...except algebra I have been told by a former student.

After graduating from Concordia University in Seward, NE with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education (with an emphasis in early childhood and a minor in health/safety/PE), I began my teaching career as a director of a Lutheran preschool program in Missouri. After three years, I graduated to Kindergarten when I accepted a call to set up the kindergarten program at Christ Lutheran. I have just started my 24th year of teaching and I still love coming to school every day. Along the way, I also earned a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education from Concordia University in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Every child is a special gift from God and I am honored that parents entrust their children to my care. As a teacher in a Lutheran school, I am able to share God's love every day in and out of the classroom as I share the greatest gift with students and their families - eternal life in heaven through Jesus.

My husband, Kelley, and I have been blessed with three daughters of our own-  Hayleigh, Maddi, and Aubrey, one son-in-law -- Aaron, one grandson -- Mason, and one granddaughter, Brielle. We like to go camping as a family and I enjoy reading and putting together new activities for my classroom.
