First and foremost, I want to teach the saving love of Jesus and God’s forgiveness to all children through the lessons and stories in the Bible. I also want to show them what it means to lead a God-pleasing life, including letting my love for Jesus shine through my own actions in the classroom. I strive to make sure academic content is developmentally appropriate for young learners and that my classroom has a balance between traditional learning settings and play-based learning. I place a focus on keeping students engaged and active in our classroom in ways that support their learning. Of course, my hope is that the skills and knowledge students gain provides a strong foundation for their continued learning in later grades.
