“I like to stay active by running, participating in spinning classes, lifting weights, and kayaking. I enjoy reading historical and literary fiction. My favorite time of year is fall because I coach my favorite sport, volleyball and watch my favorite NFL team, the Kansas City Chiefs play every Sunday.
The role of Christian faith in my life and teaching is remembering how Jesus taught everyone to be kind and accepting of others. It is important as a teacher that I follow in this path to ensure that my students are treated fairly and with compassion. (Ephesians 4:32)”
