How long have you been in your job at Grand View?
This is my fifth year at the GV working in preschool. I am excited to help children learn and grow, not only in their knowledge of their letters and numbers, but also in the knowledge of God.
What is your favorite thing about your job?
One of the many reasons I love working at GV is because we get to teach to the whole child – physical, emotional, and spiritual. It is one of the many things I enjoyed about being a student at the school: teachers were not only there to teach us letters and numbers, but also help us grow in our spiritual lives and help us better understand what it means to be a follower of Christ and now I get to share those same truths with my own students.
Teaching is my passion; I cannot imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life. The biggest reward of teaching is watching “your kids” learn and grow so much throughout the year. Even though I am teaching them, I learn and grow so much with them throughout the year. They are truly a blessing in my life.
