What do you do here at St. Mark’s? 3rd & 4th grade teacher

When did you begin working at St. Mark’s? 2006

Why did you want to become a teacher? At first I wanted to become a nurse, but when I realized I felt sick when others were sick, I decided that wouldn't be the career for me. In 3rd grade I decided to become a teacher because I thought it would be so much fun to grade papers with a red pencil. In high school I decided to become a Lutheran teacher so that I could include Bible teachings along with other subjects. Since I am the oldest girl of 9 children, I was always helping and teaching the younger ones, so that also greatly influenced me in my decision.

Who inspires you? My husband, who is a fantastic teacher.

What makes you laugh? Kids giggling uncontrollably, my husband's corny jokes, spending time with my sisters (always lots of laughter!)

For Fun I Enjoy: My passion and stress relief is Latin dancing.

Favorite Bible verse or passage? And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him. Romans 8:28

What is one of your favorite characteristics of Christ? His acceptance and love of everyone. I wish I could be more like Him.
