Personal Biography

The Lord has blessed me with my husband, Roland; sons Jeremy, Andy and Alex and 3 daughters-in-law.  In 2012, son Andy ran into Jesus’ arms.  We’ve since added Matt to our family.  One of my greatest blessings and pleasures is being Oma to 7 grandchildren.

Philosophical Biography

My primary goal in the Art room is developing in elementary students a great appreciation of and respect for God’s amazing, intricate, and beautiful creation.  As skills of observation and creativity are learned, we repeatedly realize how our artwork can offer thankfulness and praise to our Creator.

I pray that God’s love will motivate, guide, and allow me to reflect love and care to my students.  I pray that I will play a small part in preparing each one to live as a contributing member of the family of God.
