Why do you love teaching at Dayspring? I love teaching in a Christian environment, I love my co-workers, I love being able to share Biblical principles as I teach my subjects, I love everything about Dayspring’s vision.
How do you teach a biblical worldview in your classroom? I share a lot of Bible verses and read about Bible characters and talk about how they relate to our every day life. We learn many character traits that relate to Jesus since we want to be more like HIM.
What do you think most students appreciate about your class? We learn many things and cover a lot of material through the whole year. We have many fun things we do as we learn!
What is unique about you, your talents, or interests that you bring to the classroom? I love kids and enjoy helping them learn and grow. I have an organized classroom with a consistent schedule. I feel that children need structure and work well within it. I love reading and work with the students to learn letters, sounds and blending them into words. I am a pastor’s wife and love to share things my husband shares in church. Children love to learn and listen to stories and are very open to talk about their thoughts.
What have you seen in your students over the years that has touched your heart the most? I have seen students from dysfunctional homes become more peaceful, settled, less anxious, more trusting of me…. I have seen children grow in their understanding of Jesus and share their thoughts in a thoughtful way….I have seen some students ask Jesus to come into their hearts and be their savior…
