THE BASICS                   


Number of years at Salem: 33

Number of years in Education: 40


What I love most about Salem:

Jesus, family/country atmosphere, amazing families 


My favorite movie quote:

"Squirrel!” from Up


One of my favorite verses in scripture is:

2 Corinthians 12:9 

My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.


Each day I live, I am reminded of my human weakness. What peace I have knowing that God’s grace is there to cover all my mistakes.

Stamping, reading, napping, waterskiing


My favorite school memory as a student is:

When I was a freshman in high school, my family had to make a move, and I was allowed to live with my fifth-grade teacher during the week. She was an amazing inspiration to me and is one of the main reasons I wanted to be a Lutheran educator.
