Professional Biography

I graduated from Colorado State University in 2004. I was a history major and finished the teacher credential program with a concentration in social studies. Immediately after I graduated, I moved to California and taught first through third grade in a multi-grade classroom for three and a half years in Redlands, California. In 2008 I started teaching at Ontario Christian School. My experience at Ontario Christian includes teaching first, fourth, and sixth grade, as well as substituting for all grade levels. In 2013 I received my English learner authorization and finished the RIMS-BTSA California clear credential program. This year I am very excited and privileged to teach kindergarten!

Philosophical Biography

As a Christian school teacher, it is a blessing to be able to see each student grow academically as well as spiritually. I believe we should teach God’s precious children about His commandments, His love ,and the salvation He has given us through Jesus Christ. Every day I am blessed by the spiritual growth and Godly testimony of Jesus’ children. God has created each one of my students with unique talents and abilities, and I believe that every student can learn and grow.
