I love being around kids and getting them excited about learning.  It is so rewarding to see my students’ confidence and self-esteem grow when they learn new concepts.

PERSONAL INFORMATION

I am blessed to be married to my best friend, Ron.  We have three children who all attend Shalom: Brooke, Blake, and Brady.  We attend Otterbein Church in Waynesboro where I enjoy serving in different areas of the Children’s Ministry.  I love spending time with my family, traveling, reading, scrapbooking, coaching soccer and watching my kids play sports.
