Five years ago, I retired from teaching elementary school after 32 years. I had the privilege of teaching gifted and talented classes for 9 of those years. I have taught Bible school to elementary age children for over 50 years. I have written curriculum and presented workshops in several states.
I believe that children learn by being involved in the lessons. They enjoy doing projects and discussing the lessons. They like to be respected as intelligent people, never talked down to. They like to be challenged to think and to be creative. I am amazed by their imaginations!
I was chosen "Teacher of the Year" for my school four times in three different schools in two different states.
I have a BS in Elementary Education from David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee.
I have been married to my precious husband, Jon, for over 48 years. We have 4 wonderful children and 12 amazing grandchildren. I have published two books. "50 Bible Activities for Creative Minds" was published by Concordia Publishing House in 2003 and "From Alpha to Omega: Our God is an Awesome God" was published by West Bow in 2015. I finished writing a novel this year and hope to get it published. I love to worship God, read, travel, and go out to eat with friends and family.
