Philosophy of Christian Education

I believe all education must begin with truth. Scripture proclaims, "Sanctify them by thy truth; your word is truth." Everything we teach must be screened through the truths of God's Word.


Testimony & Biography

I heard the Gospel as a fifteen year old and accepted Christ as my Savior in my local church. God gave me the desire to teach as a fourth grader. He led me to a Christian college and gave me a passion for Christian school teaching. I am an advocate for the mental, physical, spiritual, and social/emotional needs of children. God fills me with love daily for the students to whom we minister.

Philosophy of Christian Education

My philosophy of education stems from my philosophy of life. I believe in a personal, transcendent God that created mankind in His image. I believe God made humans with the capacity to learn. Teachers are one avenue in providing information about His creation. I believe humans are created with the ability to value beauty and have a sense of morality based upon God's character. I also believe that mankind needs to be taught based upon a standard that reflects God's attributes. 


Testimony & Biography

I feel very blessed to be raised in a Christian home. I accepted the Lord as my personal Savior at the age of four, but my faith became firm during high school. I attended public school until college, which increased my appreciation for Christian schooling. The Lord impacted my heart to teach in a Christian school during my student teaching at VCS. The Lord is continuing to mold me into His image as I grow as an educator.
