Field hockey

Hiking up in the mountains!

What is your favorite movie or book?

The Chronicles of Narnia

What is your favorite verse and why?

Micah 6:8 because it reminds us how God calls us to live each day.  Show kindness, love, mercy, and walk humbly with our Lord each and every day!

Why do you like teaching at NCAP?

I have worked at a fair amount of schools throughout my teaching career, but I have never been so encouraged and humbled by our staff and administration as I have been while here at NorthCreek.  Our leadership team models what it means to have Christ-like, servant hearts.  We are all here to serve and bring glory to God in everything we do!

What is one word that best describes the school? Tell us why you chose that word.

Exemplary: In everything we do.  The way we value academics, our faith, and our relationships.  

What is a unique experience, talent or interest that you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?

My love for my students permeates into everything that happens in my room.  It is my hope that the joy my students feel in our classroom is a physical manifestation of the love that Christ has for them.
