Why do you like teaching at Eastern Christian? What motivated you to become a teacher at Eastern Christian?
“I have always wanted to be a Christian school teacher. I like teaching at EC because I am able to share my faith with students and teach them to be a valuable part of God’s kingdom following His call on their lives. I became a teacher at EC after my husband died and I had to go back to work. My children attended EC. As an EC mother, it was a blessing to share the same school schedule as my children.”
How do you teach a Christian Worldview in your classes at EC?
“I teach about God’s world in every subject. I invite students to discover God in each subject. We discuss God as a God of order and patterns in math, as a great communicator in language, as a God of history, as a creative and artistic God.”

“I have my own life story and testimony to share and I have a desire to help students be lifelong learners to help them discover and realize their place in God’s kingdom.”
What sets EC students apart from students in other schools?
“EC teaches and nurtures the entire student, not just his/her academic needs. EC believes that each child is a unique and special creation of God, made in His image, and has a valuable place and purpose in God’s kingdom and His work. All students are equally important and are created with special God-given gifts to use for His service. EC also encourages working with God to redeem His fallen world.”
The Eastern Christian tagline is “Engaging. Nurturing. Transforming.” How do you accomplish this in your role at EC?
“I engage the students in academics, spiritual discussions, and creating community. I take each child where they are and differentiate their learning from that starting point. I encourage them to use opportunities to advance God’s kingdom.”
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
“I want them to know more about God and love Him more. I want them to believe in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. I want them to serve Christ throughout their lives with the help of the Holy Spirit in their hearts. I hope each student knows that.
