" I have always loved children and teaching. I have always been invested in the ministry and teaching of children. For many years, my husband and I served as Children's Church directors in the church we attend. Sharing God's love with children and seeing them grow and be excited about learning brings me so much joy! Children are a blessing from God and I learn so much about love, faith, and life from them each day! For
me teaching is not just a vocation, but a calling."
