What part of teaching do you enjoy most? I love teaching the kids that God is all around them and part of all we do. I also love the way a child’s face lights up when they realize they can do something that had been hard.

What do you like most about teaching at Victory Christian Academy? We are all family here at VCA. The small class sizes allow me to get to know my students and meet their individual needs.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of school? I enjoy reading, traveling, and spending time with my family.

If you could share one piece of advice with your students, what would it be? (1) Keep your eyes on the Lord; He will guide us in all we do. (2) We are beautiful images of God.
