5th Grade Teacher at Los Angeles Christian School
I am originally from Ventura, CA. I went to California Lutheran University where I completed my undergrad and teaching credential program. I recently had the opportunity to go back to school and get my master's degree in Child and Adolescent Literacy.I have been with World Impact since August 2000. I have worked primarily at Los Angeles Christian School. I love our school community of missionary teachers, school families and students. I feel so blessed to be able to be at LACS and look forward to many more years here.
This year I am back in 5th grade! When I first joined World Impact staff I taught 5th grade for 5 years. For the past 8 years I have been teaching art, health, writing, reading, working with students who needed extra help in math and reading, and helping to coordinate events at the school. I have loved the flexibility and diversity in my job outside of the full time classroom position, but for the past 2 years I have felt like the time was coming for me to go back into full time classroom teaching. And that time is now! I am very excited to be teaching 5th grade again and am looking forward to a great year with a wonderful class of 5th grade students!
