Why I love teaching:
I love teaching because it allows me to wear so many different hats as I work with children. In my classroom, I not only get to be an educator, but a comedian, an actress, a lawyer, a confidant, a nurse, a singer, an artist, an encourager, and so much more. It is an absolute blast to work with children and teach them new things, as well as show them that everything in life relates to God’s Word.
Why I chose NCCS:
I chose to work at NCCS for several reasons. The first reason is because my children are at NCCS and love it. We come to school as a family. I get to be a part of their lives throughout the day. My husband has the privilege of being a community tennis coach here as well. Second, I have the privilege of teaching God's Word - not just as a subject, but all day long. Third, because I love seeing my students as they grow up. At NCCS, I get to see my students mature physically, academically, socially, and spiritually all the way through the 12th grade into the young adults God has created them to be. NCCS is truly a family atmosphere where we do life together.
