Education: “I was homeschooled and graduated in 2013, I went on to get my Associates in Theatrical Production, where I directed and choreographed multiple elementary musical productions.

I currently live with my two best friends, Miss Emily and Miss Sarah, in a condo and we are in a year long discussion on whether or not to get a cat.”

Why do you love to work with young children?: “I can still remember all the wonderful teachers and people who showed me love when I was little. Taught me how to paint and draw and how to braid hair and I want to be that type of teacher to all of the kids I work with. I want to show God’s love and how wonderful it is to learn new things. I love the excitement in the small things and how each day is never quite the same.”

What do you enjoy most about working at The Little Lamb Christian School?: “I love being able to work in a Christian environment. Being able to pray with the kids and remind them of God’s love and all that He has done for them and me. I love working with coworkers and under management that are like minded and have a spirit of working as the body of Christ and lifting each other up.”

Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 18: 1-3 “ I love you, Lord, my strength. The Lord is my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
