1. What drew you to teach Math?
We serve a tremendously complex and orderly God. I firmly believe that many of His attributes are found through studying Mathematics. The natural and beautiful way that various topics build upon each other, and the joy that comes through understanding the “why” is so fulfilling. I was drawn to teach mathematics because I see a powerful and logical Creator in the very way that our universe is set up.
2. As an alumna from Mt. Salus, what brought you back to teach here?
While at Mt. Salus I had the opportunity to be molded and pushed by several teachers who greatly influenced my choices and development into adulthood. Those teachers gave me the opportunity to foster my love for learning, and passion for being challenged. After college, I felt a clear calling from the Lord to return to Mt. Salus to use my knowledge and abilities to serve the students that the Lord places here. I know that the Lord wanted me to return to Mt. Salus to be the influence in our students’ lives that my former teachers were for me.
3. What do you like most about your profession as a math teacher?
As a mathematics teacher, I have the opportunity to help students expand their knowledge, and develop skills essential for success in life. I have the chance to push students to expand their minds and grow their problem solving skills as they have the opportunity to investigate the world around them.
4. What do you hope to accomplish as a teacher at Mt. Salus?
To expand and further the mathematics program and classes offered, provide students with an environment in which they are challenged to grow, serve the families that come to Mt.Salus and the community around us.
6. Beside Mt. Salus what/where else are you involved that God is using your gifts for His glory?
God has seen fit at this time to place me in several growth groups that have required me to exercise my gifts of hospitality and care of others. My husband and I are blessed to be able to open our home to others for a weekly men’s study. We are plugged in with a wonderful Life Group at Broadmoor Baptist Church, where we have various opportunities for monthly service projects to local and international ministries.
Parents and Students,
I am excited about what is going on at Mt. Salus. In the past few weeks, we had some great school events and start of new clubs and programs:
To see things like this excites me. It also ties in with our school— The Way Eagles Soar:
The Way Eagles Soar has been printed on posters and is around our school to remind us of what we stand for and what we seek. Students have been given a free decal for them to place where they choose. I am proud to be a part of the Mt. Salus family—thank you for supporting this team and let us continue to strive to soar to the highest.
Please check out our Facebook page for recent pictures of these events: like and share.
How long have you been teaching at Mt. Salus?
This is my 16th year teaching kindergarten at Mt. Salus.
Why do you love teaching at Mt. Salus?
I get to work alongside the most amazing teachers and staff who are committed to working together as a team to effectively see children grow in their relationship with the Lord. We are a family at Mt. Salus. The small class sizes allow me to get to know each student and love them for their unique personalities.
What do you like most about your profession as a kindergarten teacher?
I love watching their little faces and listening to their laughter as I read to them. I like the everyday opportunities I have listening to an exciting story, helping a child with their first loose tooth, hearing them read their first book, and watching them grow in their love for Christ.
What do you hope to accomplish as a teacher at Mt. Salus?
I hope that my students will see the love of Christ in me. I want them to come to school each day and feel safe and loved. I want them to leave each day with a smile on their face and to know that I cared.
How do you see God using your gifts as a teacher at Mt. Salus?
I truly believe that I was called to be a kindergarten teacher. God has blessed me with a love and understanding for 4 and 5 year olds. He has given me the gifts of patience and gentleness to teach them in a loving way so that they can learn in a nurturing and peaceful environment.
Where else are you involved that God is using your gifts for His glory?
I teach K4 and K5 Sunday School at Wildwood Baptist Church in Clinton. I’m also volunteer in the nursery, and I teach children during the morning service. I volunteer one or two days a week at Wildwood Childcare Center where I read to the children after I leave work.
