I am so excited to be a part of Ankeny Christian Academy! God first brought me here as a first grade teacher but obviously had other plans for me. Instead of working directly with children in a classroom setting, I am instead using the skills I have obtained over the years to be a support to the teachers and our administrator.
I hold a teaching degree from UNI. Even though my degree may be in teaching, I have also worked in several office settings over the years. At the time, those positions seemed to me more like a stepping stone towards teaching in a classroom. Now, God is once again reminding me that nothing is insignificant to Him and is showing me how He used those positions and my teaching experience to prepare me for what He needs me to do now. He always has a plan!
My husband, Tim, works as a lineman and it was his job that brought us to the area in 2013. Together we he have two great boys who attend ACA. Alex is our oldest and Eddie is our youngest. We truly feel blessed to be able to be a part of a Christian school.
I was fortunate to grow up in a Christian home with a family who attended church services regularly. My family has taught me so much about being a Christian. Even though God had been a part of my life as long as I could remember, in junior high I knew I needed to accept His Son as my Savior.
I enjoy studying with and learning from other believers. I want to continue to learn about the Bible and deepen my relationship with Christ. I never cease to be amazed by our awesome Creator. God is SO good!
