FAVORITE PART OF TEACHING
I love my work! Every day is a new experience with children. Each child teaches me something new and helps me to grow as a teacher. I love being a part of the learning, growth and progress of children. Third grade is such a fun age.
“For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
I am blessed to be married to Paul Holderman and have three great children, Ben, Rachel, and Jake, who all attend Shalom. We attend Marion Mennonite Church. I am currently serving as the Children’s Sunday School Superintendent. I enjoy my family, mission & service, hospitality, hiking/nature, and helping kids love God and creation.
