I love being a part of the education team at Western Christian Academy. The road that led me to this point started with a bachelor’s degree in accounting. Then back to earn a multiple subject teaching credential from CSU Fresno. For fifteen years, I worked in public education, most of the time in the beautiful foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
When God began to draw me back into relationship, we were given the opportunity to homeschool our two children. What seemed like a huge and scary undertaking, ended up being the biggest blessing I could imagine. I was able to realize my heart’s desire to be a stay at home mom and my children excelled in a more relaxed approach to schooling.
Growing closer to my Lord prepared me for the tragedy that befell my family. After thirty-two years, my marriage ended. Although this was by far the hardest thing I have ever faced, God was with me and I never doubted his presence and guidance. Psalm 27 has always been encouraging. This time in the wilderness has only made me stronger.
Having to reenter the workforce after thirteen years found me back in public education. I have much experience in reading remediation and became an intervention teacher. I love helping kids learn. But then my road led to me WCA where God once again provided a blessing I could not imagine. Here my heart’s desire is to teach and glorify God.
I am here to serve. I pray your adventure with WCA blesses your socks off!
