Who's Who Among America's Teachers

"My goal is to teach upcoming teachers how to teach and work in the Educational Department to help develop a strong curriculum. Teaching must go beyond just the subject matter and into technique, connections, technology, discernment, and more. I am passionate about working with students about missions as well as ways they can serve the Lord in their everyday lives."

Interests: writing, reading, singing, spending time with family and serving our great Lord
