Mission/Passion: Teaching is my passion and my God-given mission. He has equipped me with the skills, knowledge, and experiences I need to make a positive impact on my students regardless of age. I enjoy teaching my little first grade students in Sunday School as much as I enjoy teaching my in-service teachers here at SCU. Additionally, I am also blessed when given the opportunity to provide professional development to career teachers.
Favorite Bible Verse: Ephesians 6:10-18
Personal Interests: I love serving in my church as a Sunday School teacher and a musician in the music ministry. Getting to spend quality time with my husband, children and grandchildren are highlights of my life.
