I am the Director and 3’s 4’s teacher at Small Oaks. I have over 20 years of experience working in Early Childhood Education. I studied Early Childhood Education and became Director qualified at Front Range Community College. I hope to instill a love for learning in the students of Small Oaks Christian Preschool.
My husband Jon and I have 2 grown daughters, Kelly and Karen and 3 grandchildren Savannah, Lily and Levi
.I love spending time with family. In my spare time I enjoy reading, scrap booking, and watching Ohio State football.
My husband and I are members of DaySpring Christian Church. One of my favorite scriptures is Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
I will be teaching in the 4’s 5’s class at Small Oaks. I am switching gears after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Geological Engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. After working in that field for a couple of years, I decided to stay home full time with my children. During this time I spent many hours teaching young children at church and many hours volunteering and subbing for Pre-K and grades K-4. I am looking forward to teaching this age group because I know I will learn as much from them as they will from me!
My husband Brad and I have two children, Ruby and Pierce. Ruby is 12 and will be in seventh grade at Liberty Common. Pierce is 10 and will be in fifth grade at Liberty Common. They both play soccer for Arsenal and play basketball and run track in the off season.
We also are members of DaySpring Christian Church and love to attend service and activities there. This keeps us very busy, but when I do have free time I like to lift weights, run, read and crochet.Currently, one of my favorite scripture is Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see”.
I am the Teacher’s Assistant for the 3’s & 4’s at Small Oaks. I have worked as a part time teacher in the preschool environment for 10 years and have worked with children as an Early Intervention therapist as well. I completed my Master’s Degree in I/O Psychology with Capella University and received my Bachelor’s in Psychology from CSU Bakersfield. My goal is to provide a classroom that is full of joy, learning, and love for all of our students.
My husband Zach and I have two daughters aged 6 and 4, our youngest will be attending Small Oaks for her second year!
I love spending time outdoors with my family and friends. Ialso love spending time with a good book, attending and teaching Bible Study, and camping. In our spare time we participate in Obstacle Course Racing, local road races and the occasional Adventure race.
We are active members of DaySpring Christian Church. One of my favorite verses in the Bible is “The Lord your God is with you. He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you. He will quiet you with His love. He will rejoice over you with singing”. Zephaniah 3:17
