High-quality Christian curriculum with a loving atmosphere, which nurtures each child in body, mind and spirit

I am beyond blessed to be not only the third and fourth grade teacher in the ESP Program, but also the assistant director.  I was born in Melbourne, Florida and grew up in the Palm Bay area.  Yes, I am one of those few who have been here forever.  I graduated from Ashford University with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education.  I also have a Master's degree in Business Administration, and I will have a Doctorate in Educational Leadership by the end of this year.  

My husband, Eric, and I have a blended family with four children.  Needless to say, there is never a dull moment in our home and my heart is incredibly full!  I grew up in church. Mine was the family that was always there when the church doors were open and very much involved. I made the decision to accept Jesus as my Savior when I was seven years old.  I knew that He has led me to where I am today.  He continually leaves me speechless and overwhelmingly grateful daily.

One of my favorite Bible verses needs no explanation.  Romans 12:6-7 says "We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.  If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance to your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach."  It is one of my greatest joys to be able to help my students realize their own special God-given gifts.  I am excited to see what God has in store for our school and our students.
