I grew up in sunny Loma Linda, with both my parents working for the Medical Center there.  I loved school from the beginning and wanted to be a teacher all through my elementary years.  In Jr. High and High School I developed a love of science, as it was the first subject to make me really want to learn all I could about it.  I did research in microbiology in college, and was pre-vet for a while before coming back to my childhood dream of being a teacher.  This has been an eventful year for me so far.  My son, Enoch, was born during the first month of school, and has been a wonderful addition to my family.  Though I wish I could spend more time with him, I am glad to be back at school and teaching again.  

Personal Mission Statement:

I want my students to deepen their relationship with God and understand His wonderful creation more and more each day.

Favorite Bible Text:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39
