Lead Grammar School Teacher
Third Grade Teacher
BS in Education with a major in Speech and Hearing Sciences and a minor in Educational Psychology at Stephen F. Austin University, Nacogdoches, Texas
I taught public school speech therapy, special education and third grade before coming to Covenant when it opened in 2003. I taught first grade here at Covenant for seven years, and I've been teaching third grade since then. I also homeschooled my oldest two children form 4th and 5th grades through high school.
I left public education years ago because I was burned out and disillusioned with the direction our schools were going. I brought my own two children home and began to teach them academics while training them to love God and walk in His ways. It was a very nurturing relationship that bore sweet fruit in my own life as well as in theirs. Teaching at Covenant allows me to have that same nurturing relationship with families and to support and encourage parents as they train their children to love and follow God. I feel blessed to be a part of Covenant's mission to raise leaders that will change the world.
My husband and I have five children. Our oldest boys are married with children of their own. We have a daughter who is in nursing school at Houston Baptist University. We have a son that graduated from Covenant and studies engineering at the University of Alabama, and our youngest daughter will graduate from Covenant in 2018. We also have four grandchildren.
