I began my teaching career at Hillside Christian School right out of college in 1990.  After a few years, I decided to stay home to raise my children.  My husband taught at Hillside during this time and I continued to come in to school to teach music.  When my children began school, I increased the time I spent at school by teaching reading.  One year I taught a group of 3 kindergarteners.  What a fun experience!  A few years ago, my husband took a job teaching in public school so I came back to my original job.  I truly love teaching – each day is an adventure!  I am a product of Adventist Education and I firmly believe Adventist Education is high quality education in a safe, caring environment.  I love teaching in a small school because I teach many of the same students year after year.  I can watch them change and grow physically, socially, mentally, and spiritually.  I especially love when former students stop by to say ‘hi’ on their school breaks.  It tells me they had a positive experience at school.
