I am very happy to be joining the Ankeny Christian Academy faculty in August of 2016. I hope to mold students into strong Christians who know God’s Word. I have been a guest teacher this year at ACA, and I have enjoyed meeting some of you. I await meeting the ACA Association families this fall as I serve you by educating your children!
I have taught three years of 3 rd grade and two years of 2 nd grade in public school. Most recently I have taught six years of preschool in 2 private Christian schools. I feel that God has continually placed me in a place where I can continue to help students grow academically and spiritually.
My husband recently got a job at Iowa State as a technical lab coordinator in the engineering department and we moved from the Chicago suburbs to Ankeny. We have 2 children, a boy and a girl. Addie is going into 5 th grade and Alex is going into Kindergarten. We also have a black golden retriever named Eli who is almost 14 years old. We have felt called to attend Radiant Church in Pleasant Hill. At Radiant I am a leader of Children’s Church. I also attend a weekly Bible study and I am currently really enjoying Priscilla Shirer’s Bible Study Armor of God. We are enjoying Iowa and all of the many blessings God has given to us since we moved here.
In this transitional process I have seen how perfectly God has set up where he wants me to be and I have followed him. During this time, the verse Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” has been a verse that I have held close to lately. God knows the plans he has for me and I feel that he has brought me here for a reason. God knows that I have a future here to help mold young minds to become strong Christian adults and to give them a solid academic footing to succeed in life.
I look forward to meeting with you all and sharing ideas with you.
