Instructor Biography
First and foremost I am a mom. I have been a homeschooling mom and I have been a classroom teacher for a combination of 15 years. I love the art of language. Whether it be in paper form, speaking form, musical form, etc., I have found that words are powerful and our strongest avenue of communication! I consider it a privilege to teach young people in a variety of creative ways. Teaching to the student instead of the classroom has always been my biggest goal as I believe that’s how new information is retained and applied in our lives. 
Outside of teaching, I have also been in youth leadership in my church for a number of years. Ministering to today’s youth has become a passion and what I believe to be a calling on my life. Combining this calling with the professional skills that I have in a classroom is what gets me excited about teaching! 
When I’m not teaching at home or in a classroom, you might find me in the kitchen preparing multitudes of food for the husband and three teen aged boys I love and live with. I also enjoy hiking, creating new things out of old things, and the beach is my breathing place.
