What is an amazing life changing moment (of a student) from your teaching career?
Every time a student prays to receive Jesus as his Lord and Savior is life changing – for me and for that individual! The students I teach are very young, but they can be so wise and deep beyond their earthly years. Our Bible curriculum starts with Genesis even in preschool. I will never forget when I was teaching 3 year olds and we had just reached the story of Easter. The children were silent as they understood that Jesus had died on the cross for our sins. I went through the events of Friday, Saturday, and then Sunday with my solemn listeners. As I told about the women and then John and Peter finding the tomb empty, a little girl spontaneously burst out singing, “Alive, alive, alive forever more. My Jesus is alive, alive forevermore! He is alive, alive, alive forevermore. My Jesus is alive!” Her chubby little hands were up in the air swaying with joy as the rest of her classmates joined in. She got it! The Lord blessed me that day through the faith and joy of His tiny 3 year olds. I’ll never forget that moment! I have had lots of amazing moments with students and parents through the years, but this is one of my favorites from Parkview Christian Academy.
What’s your favorite subject and why?
Bible is definitely my favorite subject! I love that it’s the only book in the world that is “…living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12). What could be a better subject than the word of God?
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I love to spend my free time with my family and friends.
What is your favorite sports team?
The Pittsburgh Steelers are my favorite NFL team. Other favorite teams include the Cubs, the Bulls, and the Blackhawks. And I do like da Bears, too!
What is your favorite restaurant?
Hugo’s Frog Bar in Naperville is my favorite restaurant. Local favorite restaurants are Culver’s, Smokey’s, and Panera.
Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts?
