Welcome Parents and Students:

I hope you all had a wonderful and blessed Summer Vacation. I have been praying all summer and am looking forward to a very exciting and Christ centered journey with my Second Graders. It is an honor to be your Second Grade Teacher for the 2020-2021 School Year.

Second grade students will be taking a ship to shore excursion as they set out on their Sight Seeking Island adventure to become Kingdom Minded World Changers. These "Sand"sational Second graders will Search the Shores of Second Grade seeking out new challenges, making exciting new discoveries, and "Sea"ing the world through God's eyes. God has inspired me with a passion for life-long learning and the desire to encourage students to love reading and learning through engaging hands on activities that are fun and exciting. I am blessed to be working in a Christian school where we can grow both academically and spiritually and give glory to God for all of our abilities, talents and gifts.

I am married with two children, ages 19 and 24. Prior to being called by God to launch into a career in education, I spent over twelve years of my life in my former occupation as an attorney. I was admitted to the California Bar in 1999 and received my Juris Doctorate degree from Southwestern School of Law. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from California State University of Northridge. I have my Multiple Subject Teaching Credential from California State University of Fullerton. I have been on staff with Water of Life Christian School since 2010 and this will be my 9th year teaching 2nd grade.

I know God has many exciting adventures for us this year as we set out on a spirit filled journey of exploring our community and the world around us. I am grateful for this opportunity and the privilege of preparing your children for success so they may accomplish all that God has called them to do.

Class Verse: "Mightier than the waves of the sea is His love for you and me." Psalm 93:4

All the water in the ocean won't cause the ship to sink, unless we let it get inside. We are called to be in this world, but not of it. We need to guard our hearts and to know that God is there to protect us and says: "Be Still and Know that I am God" Psalm 46:10
