“I love being a teacher! Teaching is something I do even when I am not in the classroom. My family loves to camp, swim, play with our dogs (Moses and Rosie), but mostly we love to do intentional things for Jesus. My family has a heart to reach the lost and broken. I love to share how precious Jesus is to me, please don’t hesitate to ask questions about my testimony or faith.”
