3rd Grade Teacher


What a joy to be a third grade teacher at Immanuel! This is my sixth year at IES and I have enjoyed learning right along with our students! The Lord has blessed me with a wonderful family…three grown children and seven grandchildren, the youngest three attend Immanuel. I grew up in the international construction world, which provided the opportunity to live overseas in several foreign countries, but returned to my birthplace, Fresno, to attend college and raise a family. What a blessing it has been to have the opportunity to nurture youngsters in their developing faith here at Immanuel!

Our class verse is: “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power and the wonders He has done!” Psalm 78:4. Third grade is a year of much growth…..spiritually, academically, socially, and physically. Our desire is to help students grow in their relationship to God, and to increase knowledge and develop skills for lifelong learning.
