Second Grade Teacher
BSBA in Accounting with a minor in Computer Science at Concord University, Athens, WV
I have been teaching at Covenant Academy since its inception in 2003. Prior to that, I taught at another classical Christian school and homeschooled my own children classically for over seven years. I was drawn towards classical teaching methods during my homeschooling years. The more I learned about the history and methodology of classical education, the more convinced I became that this was the best educational model for my family. It has stood the test of time. I’m so happy to be a part of a school that embodies these same principles.
I love teaching second grade! The students are such eager learners and are on their way to becoming quite independent in their studies. I enjoy teaching all the subjects, but even more, I am passionate about shepherding our children’s hearts to grow in love with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and to follow Him whole-heartedly.
I am originally from West Virginia and became a transplanted Texan over 28 years ago. I have four sons (plus a daughter-in-law) and in my spare time I can usually be found with a book, tooling around in my vegetable garden, or working on some home improvement project.
