Faith Statement

Isaiah 33:6 is a verse I read every day to start my day. “He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure.”  Our Christian faith is the foundation for everything I do inside and outside of the classroom.  It is my prayer that my students live daily for Jesus, and that I may be an instrument used by God to help them to learn reading to the best of their abilities.
