My husband, Mike, and I have been married for 24 years and have 6 children and 1 granddaughter. 

I am a preschool teacher because I love children in general, but I favor the younger ones. They are just so fun and full of life and energy! I love the joy the children bring, and the way their eyes light up when they see you. The smiles on their faces first thing in the mornings, the giggles as they are getting ready to go home, the trust that they have in me, and the love they generate day in and day out - all these are blessings to me!

My favorite verse is "In my Father's house, there are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also." John 14: 2-3

I have been married 51 years and have 3 children, 2 grandchildren, and 1 great grandchild.

I am a preschool teacher because of my love for children. I feel that God gave me a gift of being able to teach and communicate with young children and that he placed me right where he wanted me to be many years ago.

I love the joy and gratification of working with and seeing these young children come in and learn to enjoy themselves in a secure, fun, and loving classroom filled with fun learning activities and imagination. I get the pleasure of watching, helping, and teaching these children to learn and grow so much in the 9 short months their parents share them with us. The children's minds are like sponges and I get to be a part of their first learning experiences. Seeing the joy on their faces is wonderful.

My favorite scripture is Psalm 23.

I am a wife and mom to one little girl!

I teach preschool because little ones bring so much joy! I love watching them grow and their personalities develop into the little humans God created them to be. 

 

My hobbies include making party decorations, writing, and being outside.

 

My favorite verse is : “Look, I am about to do something new; even now it is coming. Do you not see it? Indeed, I will make a way in the wilderness, rivers in the desert.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:19‬ ‭

Assistant Teacher

I am a Carolina Gamecock through and through!

 

I graduated with a degree in Journalism and later returned to school to become a teacher.

 

I have 3 awesome kiddos: Jack-11, Maggie-8, and Finley-6.

 

I love teaching preschool at ODS because children remind me of God’s goodness and provision for his people. It’s a gift to help shape the hearts and minds of young children!

 

My favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:38-39, “ For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 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.”
