I have been blessed to be part of the Immanuel community for over five years serving our students and staff as a substitute teacher, both on a day to day basis and long term. I enjoy the chance to get to know a wide range of students and watch them mature from year to year. I am excited for the opportunity to teach my “own” group of 8th graders this year in English. I love exploring literature and how it can connect us to the larger world and to God’s truth found in Scripture. I hope students will connect with my excitement for the subject and pick up a good book!
I have been married to my husband, Malcolm, for over 20 years. After we finished school in Southern California we lived in eastern New York for 11 years. We moved to the Central Valley for a ministry position at RMBC and my family currently resides in Reedley. Our oldest, Ben, is an Immanuel graduate and currently a student at GCU. Our other two, Josiah and Simone, are both Immanuel students. Outside of school I enjoy cheering for Immanuel Eagles football (I bring a megaphone and a cowbell), working with the Sparks at AWANA, and I am almost always in the middle of a book.
