“I love being in the classroom each day. Knowing what my teachers did for me drives me to be the best teacher I can to my students. I love making learning fun, and my goal is for my students to not only love learning and have fun while doing so, but to walk out of my classroom knowing the love of Jesus and what it means to truly believe in Him.”
