We are so thankful that God has allowed us to be involved in the lives of children.  We have marvelous parents who care deeply about their children, and children who want to learn and grow, both academically and spiritually. Our primary goal is that our children have the opportunity to experience a dynamic educational environment where they learn to love learning and grow and develop as Godly people.

 

I love this quote: “It is better to build a child than repair a man.”  And, the scripture below reminds me that what we are doing at home or at school lays the foundation for the legacy we will leave behind.  I pray we finish well and leave a living legacy through our children that reflects Jesus to the world. 


2 Cor. 3:2-3,  “You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everybody.  You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”

Message to Parents:

 

I thank God for the privilege of working at FBA.  It is just one of the many blessings that God has given to me in this life.

Personal Testimony:

 

I accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior when I was 9 years old.  I was raised in a Christian home and I thank God everyday for the spiritual parents he blessed me with.  As I went through High School and College I realized the impact and importance of having a personal relationship with Christ.  Each day I realize that God’s purpose for me is unending and always changing.  Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

My Approach to Learning

At the center of all the subjects I teach, the one lesson I want students to learn is that everything is centered on who God is and his plan for us in Jesus. My number one goal is to transfer a love, a genuine love, of learning to each student that passes through my class and to clearly connect that love of learning to the love of God for His children!  God has created such an amazing world for us to explore, and education is the key to unlocking a better understanding of His nature and creative genius not to mention His boundless love and abundant gifts to us. My prayer and desire for each student is that they will leave with a greater knowledge of God, a greater love for learning, and a self-respect and dedication that will enhance their future learning endeavors.  

My History

A little background on me, my father served 34 years in the Air Force, so I got to see a lot of the United States, including Alaska, where I graduated from high school. Moving around was a huge challenge, but God used that in my life to teach me contentment with myself and Him. My family has always been a huge support for me. I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart at 8 years old.  My mother had recently been saved and came home with excitement and exuberance about this Jesus.  She taught me about his love and desire for me to follow Him.  Shortly thereafter I decided to make a commitment to him.  My life has been an incredible adventure since then, but always with the guiding hand and safety net of the Lord. Through the years, God has clearly placed a call to teaching on my heart. I am so blessed by the opportunity to teach in a Christian environment.  Nothing gives me more pleasure than to sit with my students and delve into the mysteries of God's word and world.  I love the connection we have through fellowship in the classroom. 

My Education and Family

 I graduated with a B.A. in English and American Literature from the University of Maryland, an M.A. in Political Science from the University of Oklahoma, and an M.A. Ed. from McKendree University. I am married and have 3 children who are attending or have attended FBA through graduation. FBA has been a huge blessing for my family and has prepared my children well for college, academically, spiritually, and far beyond my expectations! I am very thankful for FBA and its FBCO family.

Message to Parents and Students:

I am thrilled for the opportunity to work with the students of FBA in and out of the classroom. My goal is to see every student meet his or her potential, whether that is in class, on the court, or with the Lord. I expect great things from our students this upcoming year!

Personal Testimony:

Being raised in a Christian home and accepting Christ at a young age has truly been a blessing in my life. I have grown in my faith as an adult to where I hope to inspire adolescents to lead a purpose-filled life in the path to which God has called them. I have truly felt called to be serving at First Baptist Academy, and I know that God has great things in store!

General Goals and Responsibilities:

My goal is to teach curriculum in relation to the gospel to help students build a strong foundation for their future academically, socially, and spiritually. It is also to meet each students’ needs and provide them with a safe and positive learning environment at all times. I will also be working as the Athletic Director to help build our athletic department. As an Assistant Administrator I hope to serve our students, families, and staff to the best of my ability.
