I am thrilled to be joining the staff at Ankeny Christian Academy as the Omega Challenge teacher. I recently graduated from Faith Baptist Bible College with my degree in Elementary Education and have dreamed of being a teacher from a very young age.
I grew up in a Christian family and heard about Christ’s sacrifice for my sins continually at church and home. One day when I was talking to my mother about the death of one of her friends, I was convicted about my need for salvation. I accepted Christ as my personal Savior and am so thankful for God’s gift of salvation.
I spent most of my childhood in West Michigan and attended Calvary Christian Schools in Fruitport, Michigan for twelve years. I learned a great deal about teaching from observing my teachers while I was still a student at the school and began to desire a career in teaching. After much prayer, the Lord led me to continue my education at Faith Baptist Bible College. God provided many opportunities for me to tutor a variety of students during my time in college. I immensely enjoyed working with these students, and those experiences helped to solidify both my teaching skills and my desire to teach full-time after graduation.
I am so thankful that God has graciously given me the opportunity to instruct the students in the Omega Challenge program and am looking forward to a great year.
