Lead Teacher

I am married with 4 sons ranging in ages from 1 to 19!


I wanted to teach my entire life. I love seeing children learning new things, and they make me laugh EVERY DAY! Even on the hardest days, I feel like I have a purpose. I love having the freedom to share so many important things with little people who will grow up to do BIG THINGS. We laugh, sing, play outside, read books, and learn about Jesus. My job rarely feels like work! 

My favorite verse is "Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9



I started off with a small family - just my mom, sister and brother. Now I have 3 sisters and 2 brothers, and a step father. My family is originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. 


I am a preschool teacher because I love kids! I love my job because I love watching children grow daily - physically and mentally! It's amazing to me!


In my free time, I love spending time with my family, especially my baby girl.

My favorite verse is:

"For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life 

Or what shall a man give in return for his life?"

Mark 8:36-37

Assistant Teacher

My husband, Sam, and I have three young children: Jackson, Elena, and Zarick. We both come from large families; he is one of five, and I am one of nine. Everyday has a little chaos but we love it!


I am a local, born and raised in Bowling Green, SC. Don't blink, you'll pass right by it!

I have worked with children from newborn to high school, but preschool age is my personal favorite. There is so much change and growth during that time period.

I get to be the fun "aunt" that gets to do activities with the children. I have the job of watching the light in their eyes when they learn something new, and the excitement.

My favorite hobbies are baking and reading. I would love to travel more.

My favorite verse is : “I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.”   2 Timothy 1:12
