I am excited and honored to serve on the ECS team! My love for teaching little ones began in Bellevue more than 25 years ago, and I have served in children’s ministry ever since! I have enjoyed teaching Sunday school, leading VBS, homeschooling my children, serving as a children’s ministry director, teaching preschool and kindergarten, and most recently serving as a preschool director.
I feel blessed to work in a Christian school where I can encourage families of young children in their faith and to trust the Lord in raising their children. As a mother of three grown children and a teenager, I have always drawn strength from the verse, “Apart from me, you can do nothing,” John 15:5. When we abide in Him, we bear much fruit.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy hiking with my husband, Steven, and family (including my chocolate lab), gardening, watching my boys play soccer, drinking coffee, and reading historical fiction.
