Personal Biography

We had our first child in 1997 and I became a stay at home mom. I have had a child in HCS since 2002…my youngest is currently in 5th grade. We enjoy boating and sports and I enjoy reading.
Philosophical Biography
Teaching and being in and around the Christian school is always something that has been important to me and my husband. Listening to the stories and the prayers from my children has affirmed my decision to send them here. I love that talking about God and seeing him in all areas of our day to day life is the norm here at HCS and being able to be a part of that in children’s lives is priceless. I look forward to partnering with parents to raise children to see how they fit into Gods creation and his world.
