Years at CPLS: 2019-Present
Education (Degree/Institution): B.S. Elementary Education, Geneva College; M.S. Special Education, Washburn University
Why I Teach at CPLS: I began my teaching in a small Christian school where I had the freedom to teach with God and the Bible as the foundation. To help my family, I moved into teaching in the public school system where my ability to share the true foundation of knowledge was limited. Through all the years in public school, I hoped that I would be able to return to teaching in a Christian school where I could once again place Christ and the Bible at the center of my teaching.
Personal Testimony: I don’t remember a time when I didn’t know about and love Jesus. I had the privilege of growing up in a home and going to a church where the Bible was faithfully taught. I learned that I needed to personally believe in Jesus. One Sunday when I was seven, Mom and I stayed home from evening church because I was sick. A Billy Graham Crusade was on TV, so we watched it. When he gave the invitation, I told Mom I wanted to accept Jesus as my savior, so we prayed and I asked Jesus into my heart.
