6th Grade Teacher
Number of years at Salem: 17
Number of years in Education: 19
What I love most about Salem:
Getting to pray with my students and also teaching with people I consider friends.
My favorite movie quote:
“When the Lord closes a door, somewhere He opens a window.”
-- Maria from “The Sound of Music”
One of my favorite verses in scripture is:
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
These are simple reminders of how to adjust my attitude during all of life’s ups and downs.
Some of my favorite hobbies include:
Hiking, reading, traveling, and playing with my dogs!
My favorite school memory as a student is:
My fourth-grade teacher reading “The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein to our class. This is still one of my favorites, and I begin each school year by reading it to my class.
