I was very happy to join the Ankeny Christian Academy faculty in August of 2016. I enjoy being able to mold students into strong Christians who know God’s Word.
Prior to teaching at ACA, I taught three years of 3rd grade and two years of 2nd grade in public school. Most recently I have taught six years of preschool in two 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.
When my husband got a job at Iowa State as a technical lab coordinator in the engineering department, we moved from the Chicago suburbs to Ankeny. We have 2 children, a boy and a girl. We also have a black golden retriever named Eli and a Cavachon named Annabelle.
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. We are enjoying Iowa and all of the many blessings God has given to us since we moved here.
During my 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. 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.
