Secondary Math, Chemistry, and Physics

Professional Biography
I grew up in Minnesota and attended public schools for my elementary and secondary education.  My aptitude for math became apparent at a young age, and my appreciation for the subject grew throughout my years of schooling.  A few influential teachers impacted me and my decision to become a teacher.  I began college as a chemistry education major, but switched to math education after realizing I enjoyed math a little more than science.  I graduated summa cum laude from Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, with a BS in mathematics education and a minor in chemistry.

A few years after graduating college, my family moved in New England in order for my husband to take a pastoral position at Bethany Assembly of God.  I began teaching at Community Christian School in the fall of 2010.  I have taught all middle and high school math courses, as well as chemistry, physics, and life science.

Personal Biography
My husband, Stephen, and I were high school sweethearts.  We started dating in our junior year of high school and got married after our sophomore year of college.  We have three children:  Lailah, Elias, and Titus.  We enjoy hiking and camping together, but we also enjoy playing a variety of challenging board games.

Educational Philosophy
Teaching at CCS has been more than simply teaching; it has meant mentoring students and directing them toward Christ.  Every student has his or her own interests, strengths, and abilities, and I strive to meet individual needs as best as I can.  I am grateful for the opportunities I have to invest in them both academically and spiritually as they develop their character and values.
