I love seeing a student’s eyes light up when something they've been trying to learn finally clicks. I am always amazed at children's capacity for love, faith, and growth. It is such an honor to witness the work God is doing in my student’s lives.

Most of my teaching experience has been with preschoolers, so I enjoy getting to experience the world through their young eyes. They love new experiences and the wonder of it all shows on their little faces.

I love to teach and I feel God has called me to teach. My favorite subject to teach is reading. When a child learns to read, I feel like I have helped them obtain a life-long skill that will open the door to wisdom and knowledge.

I enjoy watching the moment when a child understands what I’m teaching.  Seeing their eyes light and their heart engage is a precious moment.  My goal when I’m teaching is to experience that with each student.
