"Few people consider their work as a calling, but teachers have a real mission in life. It is an extraordinarily complex and challenging task to help young people to maximize their talents and skills. I believe that an effective teacher can have a lasting influence. My task is to enable our student teachers to become competent and thoroughly prepared for the children they will encounter in the classrooms of today. I hope they will leave Clearwater Christian and impact their world for Christ."

Interests: reading, walking, spending time with my family
