Favorite Verse: …Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 4:6
Education Background: I received my undergraduate degree from the University of California, Los Angeles with a BA in English.
Educational Experience: I spent 4 years as a substitute teacher in public schools. When my son was old enough for school, I homeschooled him part-time for two years. Later, I was hired at HCS in 2018 as a secondary English and Bible teacher. I taught secondary for one year and then went on to teach 2nd grade in 2019.
All About Me: My years teaching in public school have shown me the privilege of being able to bring Jesus into every aspect of school. It is a joy to be able to show students the hand of God in creation and to help them bring all things to their loving Father in prayer. I love learning and am continuing to pursue my education in reading instruction.
My husband and I have been married since 2009 and we have one son who attends HCS. I enjoy spending time with my family hiking, camping, and at the beach. I’m trying to learn guitar, and I want to keep growing in my understanding of our Lord.

The Second Grade is an exciting time in your child’s learning experience. The learning environment becomes more rigorous than they initially encountered in first grade, and students are ready to take on the challenge of expanding their skills and knowledge. Children at this age continue to develop their literacy skills and are able to read more complex stories. Second-graders practice expressing themselves in writing with greater proficiency. They will learn more about the concepts behind certain math skills and work towards mastering their addition and subtraction facts. The second graders will use technology to review concepts, take assessments, and complete research projects that incorporate concepts covered in all academic areas. Most importantly, children begin to develop a greater understanding of the God of the Bible and learn that His desire is to have a meaningful, loving relationship with them through Jesus Christ. As they study the Bible, they learn what it means to walk with God and live in fellowship with the Holy Spirit.
