I am so excited to be on staff at ECS. I am originally from Eastern Oregon. Growing up I attended a small non-denominational church with my family. I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was 12. I have walked with the Lord since then. After attending college at Oregon State University, I moved to the Seattle area with my husband, James, in 1987. We are currently members of St. Barbara Catholic Church in Black Diamond. We have two grown children and a grandson.
For over 20 years, I have been involved in Christian education as a parent, teacher and administrator. My children attended Christian school from preschool through 12th grade. I have taught preschool through 6th grade. I served as a preschool director and elementary principal for five years.
My favorite part of teaching is watching the students grow and learn new things. Their excitement when they discover a new concept brings joy to my heart. It gives me a small glimpse at how the Lord must feel when we as Christians accomplish His works.
