I was first drawn to ACS because of the university model of schooling because I wanted to be involved in schooling my children but didn’t know much about homeschooling.
What is your teaching philosophy?
Children are naturally curious and absorb information and influences easily. Teachers should use these to their advantage to model and encourage learning.
Tell us a little bit about where you are from and how you were raised:
My family moved around a lot as a military family, but I spent middle and high school in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. I have one younger sister who is one of my best friends. I attended public school for all of my education, and came to know the Lord in 6th grade. I was an avid church attender, even eventually dropping out of marching band in eleventh grade so that I could do more church activities. I did everything from playing hand bells and singing in the choir to attending mission trips and leading Bible studies.
In college, my faith grew even deeper and I have enjoyed time with my Savior in the ups and downs of life ever since. Jesus is the most important person in my life. Right now my husband and I spend time on the weekends leading the middle and high school students from our church. We are so blessed to be called and equipped for this work that we would have never chosen for ourselves. We also have three children and two cats.
