Biography

There's something exciting about a new school year. Even though I'm no longer a student, I still get really excited about the first day back to school. It's a time of new beginnings. New clothes are bought, new binders are loaded with paper, and pencils are freshly sharpened. A new grade is begun, bringing with it new challenges to be conquered. For some students, it means starting a new school with new teachers and new classmates. It's the perfect time to make new friends and reunite with old ones! New or old, many of these relationships will last a lifetime. At Coble Elementary, our students are given daily opportunities to begin a friendship with or strengthen their friendship with Jesus, the greatest Friend worth keeping for a lifetime!

Biography

All this and heaven too? Not many people start the day on a hug rug and get paid for what they love doing the most. Teaching for me has been a dream since lining my dolls and little brother up in chairs to play school.

My love for children and Jesus go hand in hand. I've taught at Coble for the past 19 years and am very excited to have the privilege of starting the student's school experience. My highest goal for teaching Kindergarten and Pre-K, is to help them fall in love with learning and Jesus. "All's well that begins well."

Biography

Teaching has always been and will always be a passion of mine. I have taught at Coble for many years and I still get excited about the first day of school. My husband and I have two wonderful children Noah and Emily. We also have three cute and cuddly four legged children, Bear (the cat), Roxy (the 5lb. Chihuahua) and Max ( 5lb. Malchi). I enjoy being with my family, reading, drawing, shopping, anything purple and playing with our animals.

I wish for students to develop a loving and lasting relationship with Jesus. I want them to always see Jesus as their forever friend.

One of my favorite text is Philippians 4:13 which says, "I can do all things through Him who gives me strength."
