I grew up in Cypress and actually attended elementary school just down the street from Grace. After high school, I attended California State University, Fullerton and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Child Development. I worked really hard in college and finished my schooling in 3 ½ years. When I finished the credential program my husband and I prayed that God would bless us with a family. God answered our prayers with a "yes" and blessed us with 3 amazing kids.
When it was time for my kids to start school we felt God calling us to home school. I home schooled my kids for 6 years before enrolling them all at GCS. During that time, I also worked as a substitute for the Cypress School District and I helped direct the children’s ministry at Cypress Church.
When I first started teaching at GCS, God placed me in 5th grade, then Kindergarten, and now God has called me to teach second grade. I loved teaching my own children how to read and write and to understand math concepts, but especially to know who God is and how much He loves us. I am so excited to be teaching your children this year!
